7 August 1917

Extract from the diary of Maj P K Glazebrook, Cheshire Yeomanry, Egypt Expeditionary Force

We turned out for another damned attack, & the men are so fed up that they take no interest at all in the proceedings, & really are not trying at all. Personally I do not feel surprised and can hardly blame them, for I am deadly bored. At times we all get depressed & I am particularly down-hearted just now, for the war does not seem to be going well, and may continue for years. One after envies those who get shot neatly in the first few months of the war. Went out with H. Lonsdale, who returned today, & Hugh, to fix up a scheme for tomorrow. In two hour he could fix nothing – an awful exhibition!
