1916 – October 16

Broke up Subhan Khwar camp and dispersed my force into 4 Sections, 4 little armies 3½ miles apart, self-contained under their own C.O’s. No.1 Section, 12th Pioneers, Major Hooker; No.2 Section, 15th Sikhs, Col. Gordon;, No.3 Section, King’s, Major Hyslop; No.4 Section 72 Punjabis, Col. Prentis. Each force 1 battn. inf. ½  Squadron Cav. Section of Mountain Battery, ½ Co. R.E. Section of Hospital. So now I have nothing to do.

Went in for Miss Campbell’s wedding to Learoyd, the 21st Lancers, a well run wedding and Susanna made a sweet bridesmaid and was not silly or shy. There were 7 Generals in a row! Stayed the night and returned to Shabkadr fort where my headquarters are, on Tuesday afternoon. Enemy fired desperately at the fort for an hour, from 9 to 10, but hit nothing.
