“On March 4th, I was sent to act as Medical Officer to the 121 Brigade, Royal Field Artillery, at Rolanderie Farm. I had a good billet in a small hut near the farm. The Commanding Officer, Colonel McLennan, was a very fine man. I had a walk round the Batteries every morning to see any sick men. It was fine, walking through the fields, as the weather was sunny and warm at the time.”

If anyone has any information on Colonel McLennan please let us know. We found Colonel McLennan of the RAMC but can’t be sure it’s the same man.
