Pte. Alex. Kinloch
expert machinist

I have the honor to state that private Kinloch is an expert machinist and would make a most capable man to repair arms, auto cars etc. Also capable of driving a car. He is also a competent physical culture instructor.

You will, I think find him a valuable man and who you should use in some of the above capacities.
