almost six oclock before we

got back for a cup of tea. After

that I went upstairs for wash

& change. Had just got my

legging off when the CO called for

me & showed me a message

just received. Can you recommend

Major Ward for Command  of a Bn? If

not, state reasons. Reply immediately.

You can guess his reply. So

you see if I keep fit & well

for a few months I may get

a chance, as Norton said. I

do not know the meaning of the

above but it is a step in

the right direction - it might

even mean the same course as

Dean - that would be good,

wouldn't it Lassie.
