End of Career

Show Summary Details


Brewitt-Taylor's (B-T's) leave in 1919 proved to be his last as his career in China was about to come to a close. He arrived in Britain at the end of June 1919, and he visited his wife in Scotland as her condition was quite bad. He passed by Lyme Regis where he was likely to have visited Peg's husband Pope Ellis. He had also been able to see his grandchild for the first time. As he returned to China, he must have kept his concern for his wife and enjoyment of time spent with his grandson in mind. After his return he was sent to Chungking in Szechuan, and he was able to take up his new position on April 27, 1920. In spite of how he only had a few months left with the Service, arrangements for his final leave were not organized. This chapter provides information regarding his final posting and how he left China.
