Promoted Colonel. Appointed as President of Committee re sale of Anzac Book, with Major Hughes 32rd Battalion and Lieut. Selwes A.F.A.
New Divisional Artillery settling down. Syllabus of Training for Officers and N.C.Os. issued to Brigade Commanders.
I am not quite happy re Col. Tunbridge’s appointment to a Brigade. He has never even Commanded a Battery.
