Bump! Ooooowh! Balderdash! Doctor! Blast this for a game of soldiers, I’m off! Nursing a sore derriere I return home with my tail between my legs, my bowler hat crushed and my ego severely dented. What on earth is a man to do? Peeved. Fawcett.

This particularly perturbing Polar experience that led directly to my being somewhat poorly and to my subsequent incarceration in that wretched sanatorium on the South coast of our beloved Albion, is now gleefully at an end. Today I have been given the all clear and have been released from my bed-bound hell. What Ho!

Due not least to my ongoing convalescence but to also facilitate and enable a full recovery, I must take heed of my trusted physicians advice and rest until further diagnosis is complete.

To that end it saddens me to inform you that as such I will be unable to attend the forthcoming celebrations of all things hirsute being held at the World Beard and Moustache Championships next weekend in Trondheim, Norway.

However the good tidings is that the celebrated Miss Allie Astell of Camberwell and her delightful bosom pal Laura have stepped in to the breech, kindly agreeing to represent Captain Fawcett’s Moustache Wax on this most auspicious of occasions.

They will be lodging at the Prinsen hotel and carry with them stocks of my patent pomade which will be available for your purchase and delectation and should be used as an aid to maintaining your stiff upper lip regardless.

By all means introduce yourselves to the wonderful gals as serious aficionados of the hirsute appendage et al. Cordial invites to tea or even supper will be most welcome and viewed favourably.

My humble apologies once again for being so detained and unable to join you in Norway. I raise a glass to you all and I do hope to further our acquaintance in Pennsylvania this coming autumn.

Toodle Pip!


I remain your most etc


Oh botheration!

Dear Friends

I should like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your messages of goodwill, commiseration and get well soon that I have received from the far flung corners of the globe. In response to your polite enquiries after my health and well being I can assure you that I am presently recuperating and albeit still physically weak, am in fine mental fettle. I am of course with the use of my trademarked pomade maintaining a stiff upper lip regardless. What ho. Although on this occasion our expedition was beaten by time and the ferocious elements that stacked against us, rest assured that I fully intend to return next year to the frozen far north and complete our unfinished quest! Whilst residing at the sanatorium I will publish excerpts from my Journal, which may shed some light on what went so horribly wrong.

Regards, Captain Fawcett
