Chapter Summary

By early 1917 Christopherson was back in Khartoum at the civil hospital and this time Joyce was with him. Sadly, at Christmas, news of Canon Brian Christopherson's death was received. Christopherson's new job was in the works although not yet officially announced. He was to be Secretary to The Commission on Medical Establishments in France. It was a job he was well qualified for with his background of work in the Boer War and more recently in Serbia. Despite his current work as secretary to the blue-ribbon Commission on Medical Establishments in France, and notwithstanding the pioneering work he had initiated back in May of 1917, Christopherson, in the winter of 1917-18, was gloomy. He was not alone in what had become for many an emotional and physical exhaustion under the grinding hardships of war, even though his circumstances were in some measure less miserable than those of others.
