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.
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  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.”
No chaplain out for two weeks, though we have two in Peshawar, so I took the service myself.
Peshawar was getting warm enough to make us glad to get away. We left last night at 11 p.m. Pindi 6 a.m., left in motor 8.45 a.m., arrived at Forest Dell at 11.45 a.m., having had many stoppages en route, water boiling, and engine on fire which had to be put out by throwing earth over it.
Came into Peshawar for a few days’ change and business and pleasure.
No signs of the Mohmands, marched all round the Frontier and to-day marched to Camp Tagoman on the Bara river, 11 miles from Peshawar.
Left Peshawar 11 p.m.
