Captain Humphreys said to her,“I'm going abroadtomorrow, but I'd be very happy if we could write to each other.”Joan agreed. Then Captain Humphreys went to aforeign country.And they wrote for several months.

 

Then his letters stopped, but she received one from another officer, telling her that he had beenwoundedand was in a certain army hospital in England.

Joan went there and said to the matron(护士长),“I've come to visit captain Humphreys.”

“Only family membersare allowed to visit patients here,”the matron said.

“Oh, that's all right,”answered Joan“I'm his sister.”

 

I'm pleased to meet you,”the matron said,“I'm his mother!”

 

很高兴认识你

二战(World War Two)期间,英国的许多年轻妇女在军队(army)服役。琼·菲利普斯就是其中的一个。她在一个大军营(big camp)里工作,自然结识了许多男士,既有军官,也有士兵。

一天晚上,琼在舞会(dance)上认识了汉弗莱兹上尉(captain).琼还在那里演奏了钢琴(piano)。他们玩得很高兴.汉弗莱兹上尉对她说:“明天我要出国(go abroad).如果我们能给彼此写信(write to each other),我将非常高兴。”琼同意了。然后,汉弗莱兹上尉去了国外(a foreign country)。他们书信来往,数月不断。

后来他的来信中断了,但她收到另一位军官的来信,信中告诉她汉弗莱兹受伤了(wounded),现在英国某陆军医院里。

琼找到那家医院,对护士长说:“我来探望汉弗莱兹上尉。”

“这里只允许病人(patient)的家庭成员(family member)探望他们。”护士长说。

“哦,那好吧,”琼回答说:“我是他妹妹。”

“很高兴认识你(I'm pleased to meet you)。”护士长说:“我是他母亲。”
