Left Cherat in motor, caught 2 p.m. train from Pabbi arrived Peshawar 5 p.m., not too hot and glad to be home – Daisie wanted to get back to her rabbits and pigeons. But we enjoyed Cherat very much.


1916 – December 2

Dined with the new Commander-in-Chief, Sir Charles Monro* and left by the midnight train, arrived Peshawar.

* From the article linked above, to Sir Charles Monro, is the following: “In October the same year [1916] he was sent to India as regional Commander-in-Chief where he organised resources for despatch to the various fronts of the war as necessary and brought the efficiency of the Indian army to a new height.”
