Red Cross Hosp, Cecil Road, Hale Altrincha

proud that you belong to the same race of people as these women. Many of them are blue bloods but they work along in harmony & equally share the nasty work with good girls who have only good red blood in thier body. There is no difference that I can see.

Many of them are very tired of it, but they never show it; you must have a quiet talk with them to find it out. But they have no idea of giving up the work or getting slack in it as long as the string of wounded & sick men come along.

I am going to try & get sent back to France straight from my sick leave when ever I get to that stage. I have no use for our Can. Base of training camps in Eng. They usually have N.C.O.s who are shirkers who often have never seen France & besides it is not to loafe in Eng that I came over if I have to go to our Base Depot I may have to waste my time there for months & there is so much to do in Eng as in France
