She eased across the bed, and pulsed in his arms, but she was strangely cold, and he was bewildered. Come closer, he whispered, and she moved tight against him, but she was still cold, and no relief to his desire. Then in the half light that lies between sleep and consciousness he recognized, as if his mind stood apart from him and ...

Derek Robinson WAR STORY for my Mother Chapter 1 On the map it was about 160 miles from the aerodrome at Shoreham, across the English Channel and down through France to Pepriac, a scruffy little crossroads village some way south of Arras. That was on the map. In the air, and flying a BE2c, which meant crabbing against the wind and dodging the bigger clouds, the distance would be more like 200 miles. Allowing for a stop at the St. Omer depot near Boulogne to have lunch and a pee, ...

Like the driver, ...
