Brass Hats. Only Here for the Beer?

“On Thursday, May 29th, I visited Archangel for the first time since the arrival of the Relief Force. The streets were crowded with the new troops, who seemed to me to be a smart lot. Any number of Brass Hats were to be seen. I suppose they have just come out for the sea voyage, and shall depart for Blighty in a few days (as a matter of fact many of them did go back to England after only spending a few days in North Russia). I met Col. Crombie, R.A.M.C. of Edinburgh who has come out as Medical Consultant to the Force.”
