In between failed attempts at money-making and war heroism, Basil’s dalliances include amorous flirtations with a wealthy, lonely woman, estranged from her husband, and a frivolous Bohemian artist. In one particularly dastardly deed, he borrows money from the former woman to indulge the latter. War has been declared and the the privileged Upper Classes, already feeling the pinch, must now draw in their horns even further, and lay off their domestic servants and reduce the number of butlers, footmen and gardeners. But some of their more enterprising staff have already seen their opportunity war presents, and Barbara Seal’s maids at Malfrey display plenty of get-up-and-go, “Edith and Olive and me have talked it over and we want to go and make aeroplanes”.After a single date flag: the data series contains consecutive “ 1”s that start only once a single date is reached. All prior cells contain zero. Used to identify periods starting after a single event e.g. post-operations period flag.
Evelyn Waugh, considered by many to be the greatest satirical novelist of his day, died on 10 April 1966 at the age of 62. Cedric Lyne goes to see his estranged wife before his departure for Norway. Basil plans to reveal Poppet and Ambrose as communist sympathisers. Cedric is met by a shambolic embarkation of troops at the port.Ambrose Silk is a more subtle and nuanced example of fashion. He is a dandy and an aesthete who has been a communist sympathiser – a fellow traveller in the jargon of the time. Waugh pokes fun at him on two fronts. He is terrified of what might happen to him if the Germans invade Britain – since he is aware that the Nazis have persecuted left sympathisers. And more comically, he is writing a memoir Monument to a Spartan which describes his love for Hans, a German brown shirt fascist youth.
