On returning from the war, Colquhoun Grant found himself at something of a loss to explain why he was feeling so disconcerted.
Sitting in his study, he reflected on his position. He had of course been expecting the sense of relief that would come with returning to England after a long campaign and finding himself free from the constant pressure of remaining alert and ready to fight. He had also fully expected to feel somewhat melancholy as the grief and exhaustion that he had automatically suppressed during his time in the Peninsula began to affect him. However, what he had not anticipated was this feeling of loneliness, this deep ache in his chest that would not go away.
