Wulfe, excellent stuff, as always. The horrors do love to sneak back at night, when one dreams. And a Webley, Graham made an excellent choice. One minor nit to pick, as it is obvious that you clearly are one for correct details: the British Wound Stripe did not exist until July of 1916, (Army Order 204 of 6 July 1916, to be precise).
Fullofit, it's early in our northern climes for morels, but in France it is prime season.
