“I say Carruthers I’ve got a fax thingy here saying Port Stanley has fallen. Poor chap.”

“That doesn’t surprise me one iota. You don’t get the nickname ‘Port’ for nothing you know!  Saw Stan, poor chap, down at the club last evening. In his cups again of course. I’m guessing he must have taken a tumble on the steps outside – there’re treacherous enough sober.”

“Most likely. Have you seen his nose lately? So bright red it attracts moths at night. Still better phone his missus and find out what hospital he’s in – send a bottle of vintage round or something like that.”

“Well there’s not much on today – fancy a long lunch at the club?”

“Bloody sound idea.”
