Quandary Resolution 7153
voluntourism, Brooklynite, fete, mulled wine

And while the Corporal from Crackjaw, Arizona was doing a spell of voluntourism in Glasgow as a cracksman for the local cops, being fêted for his remarkable skill and even supplied with seasonal mulled wine and wished a "happy New Year to you and your compatriots who gave us a wee hand to sort out that Mr Hitler!" by an inquisitive neighbour who, when she heard his accent asked him if he knew her cousin Florrie, a second generation Brooklynite in The Big Apple: "naw ma'am, deed I do not, fact is I've never been to Noo York, I'm jest a country boy from the South-West an this here Glazgow is the biggest city I been in so fer!" at which Mistress Henrietta MacTavish, widow of a bank manager for the British Linen Bank, bridled and, slightly forgetting the accent which her social status was worthy of, dropped from Pan Loaf to something akin to gallus: "this isnae Glesca, it's Mulguy, an youse yins better no furget it, am keeping ma een on ye an ony distress ye cause'll be reportit tae to rozzers!" and Freddie, interpreting the tone, rather than the words which were completely over his head, said: "well, thank ye kindly ma'am, an if yer ever in Crackjaw jest mention ma name an ye'll get first class treatment," and to DCI Jock Stein, "that's it open, Cap'n, I'll unlock the back door now!"
