Richard [Strachey] to Pippa [Philippa Strachey]

Scope and Content

Relates how the dullness of the place was varied the other day by lively goings on; a camp of young soldiers drawn from other regiments situated about one and a half miles from their barracks started a fight; finally stopped by the Piquet. Luckily they failed to get access to guns and swords. Strong measures were taken for the next night and there has been no row since.. Gives a list of the Subaltern's nicknames 'for future reference'.
