CQMS Charles Arnold 2nd Composite Btn., No 1 Coy. Border Regiment

Company Quarter Master Sergeant Charles Arnold served at Mustapha Camp, Alexandria, Egypt in December 1915. The camp was on the sea. Despite having endured the worst Christmas dinner of his seven in the army by that time – the lack of Xmas pudding and walnuts was remarked upon – Charlie would happily have spent the duration of the war there. He was an Old Contemptible who had been badly wounded in August 1914 during the retreat from Mons. Sergeant Arnold was my grandfather and I am transcribing letters he wrote during the Great War to his future wife, my grandmother.
