1915 – June 1

The Barbara Mullah has announced his intention of attacking us on Friday, so I have my moveable column ready, it consists of:-

1 D.Y.O. Lancers
No. 74 Howitzer Battery R.F.A.
No. 8 Mountain Battery
The King’s Liverpool Regiment
8th Rajputs
21st Punjabis
72nd Punjabis
No.1 Co. Sappers and Miners.

A nice compact little force and ought to be strong enough to take on the whole of the Mohmands. The heat will be our worst enemy. I do not think it will come off as the other Mullahs do not seem to be caring much about it.

[An interesting article about the Moveable Column can be found here.]
