“Nothing much happened during the next few days. I developed a most infernal dose of toothache, and had eventually to go along to 53 C.C.S. where Haldane, the dentist, removed the offending molar under gas. I laughed heartily all the time I was under the gas, and succeeded in biting a bit out of Haldane’s finger!”

Back in February 1916 Douglas had another tooth removed but on that occasion he definitely wasn’t laughing.
