Too Drunk to Remember

Great grandfather fought in the British Army in the First World War and also with the White Russians in the war against the Bolsheviks, escaped out through Archangel to China and then the West Coast of the US to catch a train to New York and a boat back to the UK.  He wouldn’t talk of his war experiences but “What did he think of America?” great grandson asks, grandfather. “He was too drunk to notice,” was the reply.  Obviously great grandfather  was treating post traumatic stress disorder.
