COLONEL BRAMBLE

Raymond Woog, a talented painter and charming companion, and by Sergeant de Chabaud-Latour, a courteous and meticulous elderly gentleman who served as the General's authority on etiquette. Having some free time ahead, I rented a pretty, old house at the foot of the hill of SainteAdresse and my wife and daughter joined me. It was against the regulations since Le Havre was in the Army Zone, but all my superiors had become my friends and closed their eyes to it. Seeing my daughter again was a great and delightful surprise. At that age children change rapidly. Michelle was now talking and running about. Her mother was proud of her and called her Miss Non-Non-Non or Ta peti peta. In that beautiful garden at Le Havre we spent hours that recalled the sweetness of the past.
`Your husband will soon be our best liaison officer,' Black General Welch said to my wife. `He understands us and we understand him.'
Janine seemed contented. She had found friends in Le Havre. She loved the sea and the harbour and the fine pattern of masts and rigging against a dramatic sky that reminded one of Jongkind and Boudin. I believe she would willingly have stayed permanently in that lively city.
But in time of war nothing lasts. Since the British armies were complaining of the poor organization of transport and supplies, General Asser, who had succeeded so splendidly at Le Havre, was suddenly made G.O.C.L. of C. (General Officer Commanding the Lines of Communication) with the rank of Army Commander and the grade of LieutenantGeneral and with residence at Abbeville. Lieutenant-General Sir John Asser (he had received a K.C.M.G. from the King) took Welch, who had become a Major-General, with him and requested the Mission to make me an officer and attach me to his staff, which was granted at once.

Abbeville ... A charming cathedral, surmounted by a graceful watch tower, dominated the town. The ancient wooden houses with sculptured beams were situated around a statue of Admiral Courbet holding out his hand `to see if it's raining', as the inhabitants used to say. The latter, shrewd and suspicious Picards, resembled the fifteenth-century burghers carved on the beam ends of their houses. Although the city was attacked nearly every night by German aeroplanes the tradespeople who were doing magnificent business with the English General Staff refused to be evacuated. Energetic girls braved death to sell postcards and beer to the Tommies. I had sumptuous lodgings in the home of Mademoiselle d'Aumale and took
