 “Next day, another officer and myself, had our photographs taken by a Russian photographer in Archangel. The photographer looked like a prize-fighter, and demanded 75 roubles from each of us, before he would risk his camera on us! Major Baxter of the Medical Stores told me that we were all going home in June. I hope the news comes true. Notices were posted over Archangel warning all civilians to be indoors by 10 p.m.”
