1916 – October 6

We have certainly reached bed-rock in the line of officers, if not men: all imbecile and incapable. The 15th Sikhs are all good, the 72nd have 2 good officers, the 12th one, the Kings half-a-dozen, the S & T.* none. One has to pull along somehow. Duncan and I went to Abazai in armoured car and crossed the frontier to select sites for block-houses – got back at 3.30 after 7 hours in the sun.

*S&T: Supply and Transport
