Foyle, up and coming young police sergeant, meets Elizabeth and by her response to his wooing assumes she feels he is a suitable match. He soon proposes, and she says yes, but then he is knocked down several pegs rather badly by her father. Disappointed in love (and embarrassed socially) he joins up with Kitchener's Volunteers in 1915.
Then the sad young Foyle has the "three worst years of his life," as he told Andrew.

During this time in the Great War he is wounded and sent to hospital not far from Hastings. He meets and falls in love with Caroline Devereaux, perhaps at first not knowing she is married. They are both desperately unhappy and fall into each other's arms for comfort. A child is conceived.
Caroline goes back to her husband, because both she and Foyle doubt he will survive the War.

On one of his next leaves at home young Foyle, who is now a Temporary Officer and a Gentleman, meets Rosalind Howard, and her parents are more accepting, understandably, as eligible young men were not so thick on the ground at this point in the War. And then the Influenza Epidemic started. So a happy marriage and a son born in wedlock results.

That's my take on it, at least.

Makes sense to me! :foyle1:
Just looked over the chapter on "Horse Racing and Illegal Rambling."

I haven't got the requisite capacity for deceit.

Info for The Hide.

I couldn't resist asking him if James Deveraux was CF's son in The Hide, and from Anthony's lips - YES, it was written that way. He also said, with a grin, that 'Michael will give you a different answer, or no answer'. MK was the one who insisted on making it ambiguous, but AH said that he hoped it had been conveyed during filming anyway.

:lol: :lol: Wise choice. Guess MK couldn't handle more than one emotional connection for longer than one episode. :smile:
