The Commissioner Lt. Col. Popham Young who was at Sandhurst with me invited me to stay, so I left the tents and went over – would have been far happier left on my own in tents. There are 10 Generals in this class, W. Barratt, Peterson, myself, Dyer, Luard, Crocker, Eustace, Watson, Bruce and Isacke.
