This Day in History: 1921-01-05

The 1st Battalion War Diary reported from Persia: “Owing to the snow it sometimes took 5 hours for a patrol to reach the picquet on the Naglebar Spur [from the camp in Jamshidabad]. The most arduous and trying part fell to these patrols for they often remained in position for 10 hours with hardly a move while the elements rained or swept a blizzard over them.”
