2 March 1916 – commission

Posted: March 5, 2016 by saraherhodes in 1916

I was paraded before the Brigadier this morning and recommended for a Commission, and have been accepted. We had to give particulars of our previous experience and education. Education plays the major part. Dill Jose, Bill Beresford and Bill Hoggarth were paraded also. Jose and I leave for Cairo tomorrow on leave and a course of instruction. We were lucky to get the chance to attend this school too. Only two of us can go up. We will be away about a fortnight I think. We will get a grant of about 15 pounds to buy a kit with. I was recommended before in the 10th, but this move upset it all. I expect to be gazetted in a couple of days.

Well goodbye,
Lots of love,
Lance.
