It's not all doom and gloom

SIR – The son of friends of ours, recently home from Afghanistan to attend the funeral of a fellow officer who had been killed there, was returning by train to Oxford when he was approached by the guard.

The guard checked his warrant and requested that the soldier follow him. On asking the reason, the guard replied: “Sir, on my train you travel first class.”
