As you will perhaps recall I joined the forces at once in August 1914, was seriously wounded in September 1915, and on recovery gained a commission in February 1917 and have since that that date served in France as an officer. Since then I continued to be again wounded, gassed and in addition blown up bodily three times and buried twice…The question that occupies my thoughts more and more is how and when to take up the threads dropped in 1914…I have no clear idea as to the position of men like myself in the scheme for demobilisation. I should therefore be very glad of an interview and your advice if possible. I am at present on leave from France and shall be at the home address from Tuesday. If you have an hour to spare on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday I could slip over to Manchester and should be very glad to so do.
