15 December 1916

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

Jock Cowell & I went to alamein by the 9.20 train. It does not look an interesting spot, but is near the sea. We saw an enormous number of duck near “Alex” on our way out, on what I took to be Lake Moeris. The Colonel, Jimmy, George Wilbraham, Jock Cowell & Leslie Wilson were at Alamein, and most of A Squadron. Busta was there too, but ill in his tent.
