1917 – May 4

Warming up. I went to Kohat with Dunsford in his car and there General Eustace took me in his car 17 miles up the Miranzai valley. Daisie rode the mare while I was away and the mare fell head over heels with her, but neither were hurt.

1917 – January 31

The Commissioner Lt. Col. Popham Young who was at Sandhurst with me invited me to stay, so I left the tents and went over – would have been far happier left on my own in tents. There are 10 Generals in this class, W. Barratt, Peterson, myself, Dyer, Luard, Crocker, Eustace, Watson, Bruce and Isacke.
