your transfer back to civil life when I heard that the Army

was asking men to sign on for work in Ship Yards. I saw Mr

position , we Both agreed that it was not wise for him to write

to the War Office in the first instance but to wait untill

an enqury was recieved from them, he said  he would be

only too pleased to have you Back + that I could rely upon

him doing his very best in the event of the War office mak-

-ing very much afraid will not.

I also thought of Mess Cole Marchant + Morley + decided to

approach them through the Medium of Mr George Carter

who very kindly offerred to see Mr Brailsford the Principle

who is very much in touch both with the Admirality +

the War Office + is certainly the most likely + influental

man I know for a task this kind. I met Mr Carter

this morning who informed me that he has seem Mr

Brailsford who greatly regretted that he was Quite

unable to do anything to help you although he would

have been only to willing if his efforts had any

chance of being successful from the statement made to
