Thank goodness for some good news this time.
Hugh is now CAPTAIN Hugh Sidgwick (RGA)!
I am also in a quite different part of the country, and not nearly so pleasant a one. Still, I have been very lucky for most of the summer and so I ought not to grouse.
At present I hope you are all getting some sort of holiday. Most people at home seem to be more sensible on the subject of holidays this year, and I hear that even the Civil Service are going to get them.
For a purely restful and irresponsible holiday I can recommend active service, provided you choose your front carefully. Charming scenery, cheerful company, unlimited food and drink, corps intelligence supplied daily and shelling on alternate Tuesdays…”
I can think of better alternatives for the last two weeks of the summer holiday, so, tempting – but no thank you, Hugh!
