I thought he came over quarter.

- That they had told me.

- They were wrong.

- Are you Mr Boggis?

- Yes, and you're Junker Tolly.

- In my memory you were smaller.

- That was me too.

- I have grown.

- Yes, that is of course true.

Mrs. Oldknow had to pick himself up,

but leave the RAF.

They left this morning to know.

- Your grandmother is glad you're coming.

- Really?

Put on your coat do not?

Well, all right.

- We have heard from Mr. David.

- He is not dead, though.

That was not even in the telegram.

He is just missing.

Missing, yes of course.

- How's your mom?

- It's all right, but she is busy.

She tries to find out where he is.

She went to London.

That will, yes.

We get down quick message.

If you are taken prisoner,

does anyone know all that.

- Bye, Tolly.

- Hello.

- I still call grandma?

- What did you have in mind?

No idea. Mrs Oldknow?

Keep it with Grandma.

I wanted to pick up,

but I'd rather leave them alone.

- Do you mind if they go?

- Oldknows are happy in themselves.

We packed. They put

everything back, that's probably wrong.

- That'll be fine.

- I hope it was you.

You have the building demolished as others.

That the house had probably not allowed. Goodbye.

- Do all soldiers go home quickly?

- We still need a lot of arrangements.

- Most will be home soon.

- Ready to go.

Well done, thank you. Again goodbye.

- Do you know Mrs. Tweedie yet?

- Hello.

He does not know anymore, the last time he was still a spring chicken.

- This is Bismarck.

- He knows you yet.

- Come, I'll take you to your room.

- Please.

- How long do you work here?

- Too long in order to stand still.

Do you like it here?

Oh, yes. It is a strange old house.

But it is our strange old house. That's what my father always.

He was always talking about this house.

Come down when you're done.

Do not worry, he's still alive.

I am a bit worried.

If you do not mind.

Sit down.

- Who were these people?

- This is your family.

But they are dead. Your family is

yet from people still alive?

So do they stuck in Manchester,

but not here in the south.

Have you ever been?

- As far as I know.

How come

much of the city you know?

Has your mother

a place to stay in London?

I know its not you,

just do not like.

I did not.

Check it out.

Here is bread for toasting.

There hang the forks.

Call it if you still need anything.

- Thanks, Mrs. Tweedie.

It's not that I did not,

I know its not good.

You did not think he married her.

- No.

Was that because of her origins?

- Certainly not.

That you have written.

The letter said that the leaves

still not allowed to sweep the driveway.

If you are angry,

sometimes exaggerate a bit.

He do not show the letter.

- He did not, I have found it.

He should keep him.

- He keeps all of your letters.

I was scared

Green Knowe they would not understand.

She had such a different background than we do.

It is no longer important.

- Why not?

I can not be much longer stay.

- What happened?

Nothing, but the world is changing.

I do not have enough money for this house.

- You may not sell.

Maybe I have no choice.

- It has never sold.

Until now, no.

Well almost. She brought us to the brink

of the abyss.

Mrs. Thomas Oldknow?

Same name as you?

Not quite.

That was Mary Raymer:

A Dutch, grew up in India.

She's in Kolkata

Captain Oldknow married.

Green Knowe was determined after its boring

exotic youth. Get your own sugar?

What is this? It's different.

- This was Maria's new wing.

Which is built

so she could entertain her guests.

Want to leave

because Dad is missing?
