“On Tuesday evening, 29th Oct., I travelled down the line in the Ambulance Train on my way to Archangel to see the A.D.M.S. on business. The train pulled up at Isako Gorka at some unearthly hour in the morning but I slept on till nearly 8 o’clock. I caught the 9 o’clock passenger train to Bakharitza, and at the station met Steuart who is M.O. at Isako Gorka. I think he said that he had about twenty soldiers to look after, and was having a grand time with dances nearly every night! When I eventually reached the A.D.M.S.’s office, I found him rather scared over a telegram which he had just received from H.Q. at home. He had the ‘wind-up’ properly! My conference with him was successful, as he gave me a free hand to do what I liked ‘up the line’! On the way back to Obozerskaya I dined with Steuart at Isako Gorka.”
