In “The Old Lady Shows Her Medals”, Mrs. Dowey is entertaining three other chairwomen at tea. The women are all proud of their sons in the army. The curate arrives with Kenneth Dowey of the Black Watch in tow. But Mrs. Dowey has no son; she only pretends after seeing Kenneth’s name in a newspaper. Since he has no family, he agrees to spend his leave with her and Mrs. Dowey has the long wished for experience of mothering a boy. When Private Dowey does not return, the old lady puts away his effects and bravely sets out to work.
