Chapter Summary

1912 was a momentous year for Britain-there were both successes and failures. In Sudan, the Anglican Cathedral in Khartoum, built after a massive effort to raise money for such a great enterprise, was consecrated on 26th January, the anniversary of the death of General Gordon. The event was reported as being magnificent and rather on the theatrical side, something favoured by Wingate who loved to impress with colourful regal trappings. Christopherson, a dedicated churchgoer, would certainly have attended, although he was known to disapprove of an excess of show. In the autumn of 1912 Christopherson must have felt that finally he was entering a period of peace and sanity. He was about to marry Joyce Eleanor Ormerod, daughter of Dr. Joseph Aderne Ormerod, the consultant for whom Christopherson had been house physician at Barts Hospital in 1898.
