Susanna went to a fancy dress tea-party at the Thomases’ yesterday. She looked very smart as a General in summer white Mess uniform. The Mohmands have begun raiding again and the Flying Column has been sent out, as General Davies is commanding for me in my absence there seems no need for me to return unless things get more serious. Our aeroplanes flew over the Mohmand country yesterday and I am anxious to hear the result.
Had out the Flying Column with Mechanical Transport as an experiment, worked very well.
3 armoured cars at the head of the procession and 25 cars carrying 700 men. I am arranging to pull one of the Howitzers out next time – a 60 pounder.
