Ellis, John Walter
Now sweetheart we had the Duke of Connaught inspect us the other day. We had to give him a "royal salute" & a whole lot more foolery, he kept us standing all Tuesday afternoon in the cold till we were absolutely frozen. This ceremonial stuff makes me wild. They sized all the men up made them shine up & have everything absolutely perfect & I don't suppose the old fool ever saw us, He just walked down the line & talk & laughed with the Brigadier all the time.
