April 11 1919.
A/76th Army Brigade R.F.A.
I took over the command of this battery yesterday. We are in the hills all by ourselves. There is a wonderful view from my bedroom over the hills and pine forests.
The village is small and rather dirty, but my billet and the mess are quite good.
I knew one of the Battery Commanders before. He is Wheeler of A Battery. The Colonel, Thomson came to lunch yesterday with the Adjutant, Burston.
