Letter sent by W.W. McLaughlin to Lt.Col. J.B.Rogers
2nd Canadian Infantry Battalion
EAST, ONTARIO REGIMENT
November 11th, 1917
Lt. Col. J.B. Rogers, D.S.O., M.C.
My dear Colonel,
I should like you to convey to Major Cooper, M.C., and Captain Vandersluy my very warmest thanks for the very excellent work they did and the assistance they rendered us during the operations of the 6th and 7th.
The action of Major Cooper in advancing his command under the heavy enemy barrage was worthy of the highest praise and I feel that I cannot express too much my deep appreciation of his work.
Such loyal and ready support as this always goes a long way to foster the already good feeling which exists between your own battalion and the one which I have the honour to command.
With very best wishes,
(Signed) W.W. McLaughlin
