“The most noticeable thing in this war, I think, is the good qualities that the fighting men have discovered”

Percy Spencer wrote to his sister Florence with news of his situation.

Apl 26, 1918
My dear WF

I think I told you yesterday I am employed on Headquarters and getting into the run of the work again.

General K and the Divisional General gave me a very warm welcome, as did also all the officers I have come in contact with during my time in France.

The officers here too, who don’t know me, are very charming and good fellows. The most noticeable thing in this war, I think, is the good qualities that the fighting men have discovered for our happiness and inspiration.

So dear Old Syd is where I expect to be shortly. I must write to him & try and gain touch.

By the way, Garwood, Tyrrell etc (my boys) got out all right. Only the gentlemen higher up got snaffled.

With my dear love to all
Yours ever
Percy
