'Death the Leveller'

Reading experience

Evidence

"16th. October. Thrown out at Shorncliffe, above Folkestone. Very stormy day with heavy seas running. Informed that the boat would not cross today, so took an exceedingly good lunch. After lunch we were informed that the boat would sail at 2.30 p.m. Left then, tremendous rolling and pitching. Everybody sick. I remember well standing at the rail with a general on my left hand and a major of the R.A.F. on my right, and talking to the deep with them. I felt like quoting ""Death the Leveller"" to them, substituting ""seasickness"" for ""death"". There was some humour in the situation. Boulogne. Put up at the Meurice and went to bed after tea."
