March 22, 1943 – strong words about army red tape and medical arrangements

All Churchill Tanks called in and we are now issued with Rams. The reason for this I do not know. I am very fed up and disgusted today – all our medical build up has been broken down and we now have absolutely nothing to work with. Many Canadian homes will have vacancies in them due to nothing but selfishness, Army red tape and absolute lack of interest in the lives of the men who do the fighting. Regimental medical arrangements at present are criminal – God alone knows what the result will be.
