  • Letter from General Sir Henry Mackinnon to Lt-Col. Machell:
    Hope to 'fetch up' at the Station Hotel, Carlisle. I shall have my Motor with me and shall come out to Camp on Friday morning for an hour or two, and should like if possible, to see a little digging, some physical drill, and other Company work. Don’t have any Parade for me. I may ask them to march past in fours.
