Having read in Haldane’s diary how Brockie railed against Churchill after the escape, I thought I would approach Brockie’s family for an explanation. It seems that any resentment on Brockie’s behalf did not extend to his widow, Annie. I spoke to her granddaughter, Mrs Vera Gallony.

‘I have in my possession,’ she said, ‘a letter from your grandfather addressed to my grandmother. I’ve kept it all these years. I knew some day it would be of use to someone.’

Annie Brockie, having fallen on hard times following her husband’s death, had sought assistance from Churchill. He replied on 21 September 1902: ‘Dear Mrs Brockie, I am not a rich man and have to earn by writing all I spend. I send you a cheque for £10 which I hope may be of some assistance to you, and I regret it is not within my power to do more. Yours very truly, Winston S. Churchill.’
