7th C.I. Bde.
Dear Col. Hill,
Just a line to congratulate your Bn. on the successful and spirited patrol work of yesterday. It seems that Lieut. PROBERT and all his patrol acted in a very brave and brainy manner, the only pity is that they were not strong enough to exploit what they as ably accomplished.
(Sgd) Hugh M. DYER.
