A sound grasp of mouse code

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IWAS thrilled to see the ar­ti­cle on Faw­ley Court in Buck­ing­hamshire (June 28). I was sent there to be taught to use the wire­less for Spe­cial Op­er­a­tions Ex­ec­u­tive FANYS. I was only 17—what a shock! I came from a coun­try home, but the bare rooms and pas­sages oc­cu­pied by mice put the fear of god into my mates, so I spent my time run­ning round re­mov­ing the be­wil­dered ro­dents. Sadly, I was no good at morse at high speeds—just mice—so the colonel in charge sent me back to Lon­don to code in­stead. I had al­ways won­dered what hap­pened to that beau­ti­ful house, but never left be­ing a farmer’s wife in Wilt­shire to find out. Ann Thorn­ton, Suf­folk
