Chapter Summary

Since 1904, Christopherson had not found life in Sudan easy. Although his work continued fruitfully, other events surrounding him became more difficult to contend with. He had been through the Court of Enquiry and suffered almost continual animosity from P.R. Phipps, who finally left Sudan at the end of 1913, and now Dr. Crispin, the man who had wanted Christopherson's earlier job as Director of the Sudan Medical Department, had finally landed it. Even if Crispin had not made any untoward remarks aimed at his old boss, the idea of answering to Crispin must have been an irritant in Christopherson's daily life. As his brother-in-law, Dr. Tom Ormerod, said "Old Christo rather cherished his enemies". In 1915, for these circumstances alone, Christopherson had reason to find relief in the chance to get out and do something else-something to help the war effort as war had been initiated in Serbia.
