It is hard luck on Hooper but he won't 

really have to take off a "pip" as he will

get acting rank whilst commanding a

permanent rank - much more so than

Salaman, Newton & others who were originally

in the first line and are still on the

strength, though holding soft jobs in

England. Eking goes fail to Capt also

Fancy Nobby & Hall being senior to Hooper now

though. He had probably reckoned on

my being senior but certainly had

given no thought to the others. However

he is a jolly good soldier and out

here an excellent company commander

& if he gets a chance will get on well

- provided the war lasts.

  Am afraid this "blues my chance" for

that six week course but then I don't
