Cherie, 

   Your letter of Nov 2 arrived last 

night.

     Old Tatters, the M. O. has got the military 

Cross. He's been recommended altogether four 

times! One of our S B's has got a second 

bar to his Military Medal. So our record 

now stands as far as I can make out

                   1 C. M. G.

                   1 D. S. O. 

                   1 V. C.

                 12 M. C's

                   6 DCM's

                 50 M.M.'s

                   2   "   "   bars and 1 Legion of Honour

                 Not so bad either

       Carr left on leave today and I am now

C.O. The scream is that Marks is expected

to join us shortly with a draft.  As captain

of course and he will do a while as junior

captain to learn the routine.

    Won't all the Winchester boys laugh, 

especially those who have command of 

companies. 

                                           Love Ernest


          Old Rogers has been passed fit and is going 

to the Tanks. His lady wife will probably be a

proud mother about Xmas Lawrence tells me
