18th August, evening [Private] I swear, they get younger every year. They stand there full of certainty in their own ability and all I can see is how easy they'd be to kill. They're giving me children and taking away my experienced officers and fuckdamn I need him sod it all. Merlin, this can't go on. We can't just hang on while they bleed us white. This can't go on.
There has to be another way. [/Private]
[Hitwizards] Some of you may have heard by now - I know how you lot gossip - that Alastor Gumboil has been removed from the Squad. This is the result of circumstances beyond my fucking control, and indeed beyond his, and no reflection on his skills, abilities or actions. He was a damn good hitwizard, and he will be most sorely missed.
He will also not go unavenged, but none of you so much as lift a finger without my say-so, you understand? This is not negotiable.
