Everything here is in chaos. I have 1200 men in the wing which I have to look after. The returns are enough to frighten a whole division. My best sergeant-major has gone to England which is annoying. The demobilisation question is a hard nut. You can imagine the conditions in a base camp like this. We shall be broken up soon I hope. Then I may get up the line.
