    Three of my men, all Stretcher Bearers 

incidentally, have been awarded the Military

Medal. These are another dozen or so

coming to the Battalion. We have now 

lost count of our DCM's Distinguished Conduct Medals and 

Military Medals!

     Kennedy, the C.O. of the 21st has the 

D.S.O. I don't suppose many Brigades 

have clocked up more honours than ours!

     Well Cherie. theres  no news to give 

you. all the news is in the papers. The

Russian business sounds awfully good!

     Kiss the wee scrap for me

                             Yours ever

By the way, it is now forbidden to 

officers and men to insert or have inserted 

in the papers any requests for letters 

or presents for the troops so you will 

have to abstain from inserting any 

advertisements as you did last winter.

on the left margin

It appears that German agents employed this method of getting into touch with

people to find out information which was of use to them and the whole thing has 

had to be stopped.
