Back in the trenches. It was just like coming home again to be back amongst the old boys again, most of whom look fairly well.
One Australian is worth ten Englishmen. The Indians think there is no-one like us and we think the same about the Indians. I don’t know where England would be without the Colonial troops, Scotch, Irish and Welsh. They are certainly the main stay. The English themselves are not nearly so good. Of course that is my opinion. I may not have seen the best English troops in action. They are in France. If they are anything like the famous 29th Division they will do me. The 29th done some glorious work at Cape Helles.
