You will have "cable" re D.S.O. by this, it means I wear 3 ribbons now, & the D.S.O. is worth having- I hope to have my leave in a week.
Good news from France.
I wish Joe was here but even if he is allowed to join it will take 6 mos. to train him & ere that it may be all over, let us hope so. Went Cavalry School Richon for dinner & Polo, part of the School itinery is to give young Officers a decent Start. Both English & Australian Officers are mixed up together.
