I said "Well sir I have been with the

Battalion a long time now, I have been

second in command for a good few

months" He broke in then & said "Yes

and in command too & I know you did

well." I want to get on & I don't 

see much chance now but if I

can be of any use to you I am 

quite willing to do my best & I expect

I'll get a chance some day." 

  So that's how we stand. Dean is

still on leave & I don't know what

will happen to him when he comes

back. Expect he will get a job

somewhere else. We had a letter from

the C.O. a day or so ago to say he

was going on well now & had

actually been out of bed. Dean

had been over to see him. Phillips

is over here now but don't know
