I remember you so vividly - love you so much. xxxx.
Sunday. it is inow 9.30, which is my usual time for beginning
to write to you, and I had intended to write all afternoon.
This major business is just making me busier, so far - which
I hardly thought was possible. But it certainlt seems to be
bringing me exra work and responsibilities outside the Company.
On Tuesday, there is to be a Jewish recruiting march, of
which I have to take command- and so today I had to go
out I make all the arrangements. I will tell you all about
it after it has happened. And on Thursday, I have to be
the President of a Court Martial. My various experiences
as defending officer will be of help, of course - but I shall
have to swot up the procedure pretty hard - and the Manual
of Military Law is a mystifying tome.
The whole root and branch of this trouble is having no
second in command - who, in these companies, does the work
of adjunctant and quartermaster. And so having these jobs piled
onto me, on top of a fairly difficult command, is all a
bit too much. But, as I think I told you - this should
be dealt with any day now. You remember me telling you
about the various officers? In February, when I was in
the process of getting rid of [Behrens] - I recommended
Headley for the job. And I now hear from the
Military Secretary that the is to be appointed . And
when this happens, it is going to cause gloom,
and anger among the other British subalterns -
