"Dear Colonel HILL,

"At this state of the game when the Regiment under your command has been asked to go in on a new front and take over new work, after an already long tour in the line, I wish to express to you, and through you to every Officer, N.C.O. and man in The Royal Canadian Regiment, how pleased I am at the most efficient and cheerful way in which its duties are performed. I thank you all for the splendid manner you have upheld the great reputation of the Regiment and through it of the 7th Brigade and I depend on it to the end. Again thanks.

Yours very sincerely,
