1915 – August 19

Still no rain and the country is quite parched. But the great heat has gone and we are having a beautiful cool spell. The heat will come back again, but will never be as fierce as it was before. The Bunerwals swarmed down onto Rustam* two days ago, about 4000, but the Guides were waiting for them and I think they must have suffered severely. The Guides only lost 1 Officer and 1 N.C.O. killed and 2 wounded. The Mohmands, who are my particular lot, seem quiet just now and the news of the Buner failure will probably put them off.

* Unable to ascertain where this is
