he was no _____ good. I don't think

that is a true statement - far from

it, but Dean has been unlucky.

His good work has often been

missed and his slips have

generally been seen. The CO said

he wouldn't promise anything but

that was how the matter stood. 

I would rather be second in Command

of this Bn than any other for the

time being but I am very 

doubtful about it coming off.

There are so many officers at

present out of a job that it will

be difficult to get a "rise." Still

we'll live in hopes. There are

many possibilities such as six

month's exchange to England as

a war worn worrier, many courses, 

and plenty of work. Our mail
