Here is a glimpse behind the scenes of an army post in Scotland in war time, without the constant borrowing of the tragedies of wartime Britain. Social-gossipy recording, pleasant, humorous, popular minutiac, of family and military backdrop. ""Mrs. Tim of the regiment"" carries on through 1940; she meddles in her friends' activities, she faces the fear of Tim's loss, she bridges the language gap when Polish soldiers arrive on the scene, she forwards a romance between a houseguest and a wounded soldier, she and Tim look beyond the the days of war to a future outside the army. This sort of human story is needed to keep one's sense of balance in regard to life going on in Dritain today. And D. E. Glvenson does it with just right touch.
