...someone else. But if the War Office was going to play this sort of game, it is the end of all things. Poor Drew, I am awfully sorry for him & I am sure he hates me.

There was a mother of one of my S. R. Sergeants who said her son was her only support. I said I would send on her letters to her local Secretary of the SSFA [Soldiers' and Sailors' Families' Association]. Will you see about it for me. He name is Mrs Wilson & she is the mother of Sergeant Wilson & lives at Burnfoot, Benbecula-I can't find her letter. Sgt Wilson has assigned her half his pay. I can't find the letter. But put the SSFA onto all these...
