Tuesday 22nd February
Unable to yet arrange with 1st D.A. to get extra personnel. Arranged for General Cox to inspect unit tomorrow at 10.30 AM. I shall then formally take over Command. Medical officers reported for new Division. Arranged for materials for mess for officers and Sergeants. Indian Cavalry will soon be moving to new position, so we shall take over their site which is much better than the one we now occupy.
