No 48                    4th Oct 1917

     My Own Darling

              I received letters from CO Fox

+ Knox to day + have answered them. They are

all going on well. I also received your No

35 + 37. We have had a fairly quiet day

but I have been very busy cleaning

up + helping in re-organization, getting

out lists of names for honours &c. We had

to submit a list of honours also for the

new year list the other day. I knew the

CO was intending to send mine in first

for work done on several occasions

during the last six months but I couldn't

very well tell Dean so + as the CO

+ Fox had both gone I shall not

get the M.C. after all. Still, it's all

in the days work. The C.O. said

in his letter he was writing to the

Brigadier but his letter got there

after the list had gone in so that

didn't help. I'll enclose the COs letter

for you to keep for me. Yes Scott

is a captain & a very popular one too.
