It was strictly a private affair in my honour, being a pal of Sir Derick at school.

I am happy about the hole thing.  Now about school.  I graduated with a Distinguish and my promotion to Colonel will be here very shortly.

My Brigadier asked me this afternoon to take command of my battalion; that I will do soon.

I was forgetting about last night.  Miss Megan Lloyd George the Member of Parliament also signed my autograph book.  I now have quite a few signatures of real great people in it.
