We were always the very closest of chums ever since mobilisation, and if ever three pals stuck to one another it was Walter, Fred, and I. I cannot tell you how lonely I feel without his company, but we must all do our best to bear his loss with as light a heart as possible, for we all at the present time must be prepared to make sacrifices for the common good. My own brother died of wounds received in action only two months ago, so you will be able to judge the state of my present feelings.’
