James is still is staff position but yearns to join his Regiment on the front lines. He asks his father to pull strings and have him transferred but Richard won't hear of it. He is completely opposed to the favoritism that seems to be found everywhere and he is concerned at putting his only son in danger. Hazel is equally opposed thinking James is selfish, caring only for himself at her expense. She relents however and unbeknown to him, visits James' Colonel to see what might be done. At the hospital, Georgina is having difficulty adapting to her duties. Young socialites like herself are not well regarded by the professional nursing staff and she finds the hours long and the work demanding. She perseveres and finally gets a patient of her own to care for. Some of her friends have also joined her and Georgina is proving her mettle by comparison. Below stairs, Rose announces that she is to be a conductress on an omnibus, much to Daisy's annoyance as she had hoped to do the same. Written by
