Owing to the trouble on the North West Frontier we have had to send back one of the two wireless officers. As Dagg's face has not yet healed Nepean is returning. He set off for Peshawar today. In order to take photographs, and to watch birds on the huge lake, the Yamdrok Tso, Chapman is accompanying him as far as Nagartse there he will await Major Finch, the new commander of the Gyantse Escort, who is coming up to spend Christmas with us.
