John Hope who married Bessie Dunsmuir & some others whose names you wd not recognize. Amongst the Canadians is a very wild daredevil looking fellow who has the DSO & M.C. He distinguished himself I believe by shipping over to England for two days instead of coming to the school, an incredible thing in military circles. Among the Imperials are some very young captains quite in their 'teens, one called Waight who sleeps in the next bed to me reminds one very much of Frank at the same age both in face & manner. They all treat me very kindly but hardly ever fail
