Did I tell you I dined with the Colonel the other night
About the Leave. It is a very good idea of yours to start arrangements right away. The difficulty would be that I wouldnt know for certain till the day before. But probably I would know approximately within a week a week before in which case I’d wire , “Meet me the Queens Hotel Chester night (or morning) of such & such a day. “Morning” would mean I was hoping for to catch the 8.30am of the day mentioned “Night” that I was travelling by the 8.45 PM of the day mentioned.
There are two more of our Btn before me and I am along way behind the 2nd as he went last Nov. However it is said that there is to be a further increase in an allotment soon.
Did I tell you I dined with the Colonel the other night a nice man easy and kind hearted
