May 11, 1944

It is now 5 months since I informed Col. Denison of my desire to resign my commission in the Canadian army. I have found it extremely difficult to train those under my command due to the numerous ranks in authority over me and the use they make of their authority. It is my impression that a lieutenant is not supposed to think or act on his own but to enforce the petty whims and desires of his superior officers... My outlook on life in general and on the army, I find to be more in common with that of the other ranks than that of my fellow officers.
