Dear Lisa,
Private Quelch expected Corporal Turnball to assign him in charge of a unit. The corporal said that the platoon officer has asked for and then he pauses for a moment. A platoon officer usually is in charge of military units and Private Quelch expected an elevation in his ranking, considering his knowledge. However, the corporal continued to say that they were looking for a person to take care of permanent cookhouse duties.
