Excerpt, page 86:
”We all got sick. . . Pamela’s Aunt Joan was sent for from Belfast. She was known to be in the Auxiliary Training Service and Primrose told Peggy to warn her on the telephone that she’d be stopped at the border if she came in British Army uniform. Peggy said she was sure she wouldn’t do anything so foolish, but Primrose was really hoping she wouldn’t come at all. ‘Miss Worby’s on the verge of collapse!’ I heard Peggy telling Dr Costello, as they came up the corridor to the Blue Room, where Nicky and I were in bed and I was very sick – mainly because of the disgusting whipped-egg-and-milk drink that was meant to make me better. He looked down our throats and made us say, ’Aah!’ and then his toe kicked the po that was peeping out from under the bed and it went ‘ting’ and we tried not to laugh”.
