6 October 1916

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

Douglas Brocklehurst was wired for last night to go and command a Battalion in France , which is a serious loss to us, It is possible that the same might happen to men, as my name is in for it. I should like to go as his second in command, but not to command a battalion before I had ever seen one. He went off in the afternoon.
