Commanding Officer's words from the Stock Exchange records

His Commanding Officer (Lieut.-Colonel Darrell, D.S.O.) wrote: " Every day Monty became dearer to me as a friend and more valuable as an officer. . . . When I say that he was unequalled as a Company Commander in the New Armies, I am not using terms of exaggerated praise but stating an absolute fact that was recognized by all who came into contact with him, from generals downwards. His men absolutely adored him, as well they might, and not only the officers of this Regiment loved him but all the officers of the Brigade who had the honour of knowing him."
