Letter from Arthur Powell

Scope and Content

A short letter to his parents informing them that he is still 'A1' and that nothing has changed of recent. Arthur still mentions 'Dixon' whom he is convinced, was wounded in the area he is now stationed. Arthur has received a letter from his parents dated the 18th August; and also mentions that both, themselves and his Grandmother will have received their letters from him by now; correspondence is healthy and frequent. Arthur makes a point of interest, noting that their cap-badge is now Lord Derby's private crest; he was instrumental in raising Arthur's battalion at the out-break of war. Lord Derby's brother, the Earl Stanley, is now the company's new brigadier.
