My Own Darling,

  We are still here although

the weather has changed again. After

the snow yesterday afternoon a rapid 

thaw set in which has continued

all to-day. You can imagine how

wet everything is. We have had

a quiet day preparing for an 

inspection by the G.O.C. to-morrow.

The Brigadier came round this

morning, he seemed pleased with

life & as usual was very nice

to me - but of course never talks

about the things I want to. Did 

I tell you that a new C.O. came

to one of the other Bns & he turned

out to be the officer who was

Commandant of the School of Instruction

I was at, at the Station Hotel York

in 1910. We had a talk about that

course yesterday. Wish he had

come to us in place of the fellow
