shorter than the other. I shall

have to get Sgt. Godbee to teach me

his trick. The piece of shell they

extracted was about 1 1/4" x 3/4" x 1/4" +

it completely pulverised 1 1/2 inches of

my shin-bone. However I'm 

alright but am told I shall not

be able to walk without crutches

or sticks for at least 5 months.

  Will you use your own 

judgement about recommendation

entirely. I need hardly tell you

that I shall write to James

+ tell him that you were to have

figured at the top of my roll, but

that as you are now C.O. you 

cannot recommend yourself! I

expect to be here about 10 days to a

fortnight + then "Blighty." I'm 

awfully sorry I missed you all
