Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 320
Nov. 2 Tue.
Have been appointed Private Secretary to the Colonel – There seems plenty of work attached to the position & pretty responsible work, too.
It will mean constant attendance on Col. Martin & will now leave me very little spare time.
Invited to a Dinner at the Sergeants' Mess to-night. The W. Officer thinks I am to be promoted to Corporal – hence the invitation.
