[Page 26]

Thursday 25 January 1917

Moved out to El Burj & took over Command of B Squadron the old Squadron I had on the Peninsular as the late Major has been sent back for a mistake he made.

[The remainder of the page crossed through] I am in Order as a Tempy. MAJOR at last, so am not keen to go to Col. Meredith now.

However we will see, but I'll wear a Crown while I'm here any way. Received letter from home – Wife & Mrs. Ferran also Papers.

Don't put much in Papers about my majority till I tell you it is in Orders, it takes time to come back from the Base.
