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.
The great Fête in Mrs. Blakeway’s garden for the Red Cross. Daisie has a stall of home produce, helped by Miss Durell, and Susanna dances with the lot of other pretty little girls – she enjoys it immensely. To-morrow she goes to the Longdens at Kohat for a week. I am out bivouacking to-morrow taking the 2/6 Devons for their test.
Pulled out of bed 3 a.m. by General Campbell. Pabbi location map raided, 4 Hindus carried off for ransom and some houses burnt. Sent troops out to Bara and on the Kohat road to head off the raiders, not likely to catch them.
