The Forlorn Hope
I was fortunate enough to find a rather impressive framed print of this picture in my local Marie Curie charity shop this afternoon. It was only £15 so I decided that it would look jolly good on the dining room wall, regardless of the reception I would receive from the other half. As it turned out, she raised an eyebrow or three at the purchase price but, after I deployed the charm offensive, she lost interest and wandered off to do some additional hoovering. Huzzah!
