18 July 1918 Thursday
Well we are a much diminished Squadron. I suppose we will go on like the "BROOK" & until each one goes WEST at his appointed time. The German prisoners said if
"We would only fight with"
"then we could beat"
"the world." General Sir H. Chevaul is going to inspect & thank us tomorrow- the prisoners look fresher cleaner & better clothed than our poor chaps- Posting this to let you know ALLs well & my love to all at home.
