world war christmas truce

“They say they sang it in the trenches.”

“Sorry?” Grant has been staring into middle distance for a while. It’s a quiet night, just the two of them, after too much drinking and dancing the night before.

“Silent night,” De Lancey explains, “you’ve been humming it. They sang it at the Christmas truce in the last war if you believe the propaganda.” He’s on crash leave after bailing out into the sea on his last flight and has come up to London to stay with Grant on his way back from a few days at home.
