Report of Drifters off Cape Helles 14 January 1919
S.O. 9th Div of Drifters
D “Northesk” II
Jan 14 1919
Staff Paymr (V)
Enclosed I send receipts for slops supplied to vessels in my Division.
* The receipt from M.L. 508 has not been returned to me but possibly the C.O. is sending it direct.*
Regarding the slops for my vessels everything was correct with the exception of 1 Razor, 1 Hat ribbon & 1 pair of braces short.
The shortage of the braces I have discovered, as on checking your “Summary” sheet I find the pair for H.M.D. “Prime” was not included, although it was on Prime’s sheet.
The other two items I cannot trace.
Your obedient servant
*Receipt from M.L. 508 just to hand so is enclosed.
