June 9, 1944

Working inspection by Gen. Drummond and Brig. Farmer today – everything went off well. Was over to Shorncliffe Camp this morning in regards boat stretchers. Everything under control. I now have a padre in my Unit – don’t know yet how he will make out yet. Lt. Col. Jones (Baptist) visited me today. Baptist minister from Hamilton. Knew your father, Hal. Was invited to take 1st Church in Calgary one year ago.
