We are now at rest and I hope in a day or so to be able to write a respectable letter – unless of course we are rushed off to battle “toute de suite”. I am no longer in Command, one Dyer Bennett having arrived. However, I was C.O. for 6 days including a battle or two which were very successful. I am now once more Adjutant – my proper job. Very fit and well, and hoping to get home soon. Have had extraordinary luck – Ashdowne, Banwell, Dennis and myself are the only officers who have been through whole of last fighting and two – B. and D. had slight wounds. One serious loss during last few days has been that most delightful little man the Doctor who was killed tying up a wounded man. Yesterday was the worst day, and yet the very best day I have ever had in this war – some time I will tell you all about it. Col. Wood should be back on Thursday, & then for LEAVE. I cannot quit here until there is someone at the wheel who knows all about the Btn.
