Storyline

Rose is shocked when she meets her one-time fiancé, Australian Gregory Wilmot, on the bus where she is working as a conductress. Gregory had already been to Eaton Place and thanks to Daisy knew where to find her. He's in London on leave and is now a Sergeant having fought a Galipoli the previous year. He and Rose once again start seeing each other and have cleared up any misunderstanding from his previous trip to London. Rose is again thinking that this time, she will marry him but Gregory isn't so sure that's what he wants. Hazel meanwhile is upset with Lady Prudence who she feels is taking over the household. After rejecting Prudence's request to host a tea for wounded officers in the Bellamys drawing room as she would not want to overtax the already overworked servants, Prudence goes directly to Hudson to discuss the issue. Hudson assures her the staff could cope and Hazel finds herself trapped into hosting the tea party. Written by garykmcd
