I have a moment to spare. I had a most worrying day yesterday at the War Office. I saw K, the Adjutant General & various other Generals & Secretaries, Everything seemed to be confusion & no-one knew anything. However, after a good deal of bother, I got my business done, though not very satisfactorily.
...Lovat is ahead of me. He has got permission to raise his Scouts again!
