Thomas Hudson succeeds in writing his account of serious war experiences in a captivating way by weaving in his sense of humour. "I was once taken into the fire station and remember the holes in each floor through which the firemen slid down the central tube, when called out. It made me giddy to look down, never having had a head for heights. I preferred 'terra-firma'. The firmer, the less terror." "The only place I ever rode a horse, until I was lent one by the Cavalry at Ismid in Turkey. I never knew anything packed with hay could be so hard." "I can see my mother yet with headphones gingerly held to her ears and the look of wonder, almost awe, on her face as she heard music and speech coming over the air, hearing the wireless for the first time." "That I was born to be in the troubled spots of the earth, no doubt some astrologer could deduce. That I also led a charmed life amid death and disaster, I knew without reference to any stars."
