So what happened?
Finally another boat came and took us away, and we joined the other soldiers.
I remember going into the camp, and getting a hot meal, and clean clothes.
It was wonderful.
We were given our pay, too.
I remember the date on the coins,50 BC. It was an exciting time.
And did you stay in Britain?
Oh yes, I was here for five years, from 50 BC to 55 BC. I enjoyed my stay in Britain very much.
And then you went back to Rome?
I can't remember anything after that.
Well, Trevor Cartridge, thank you for telling us your story, in your own words.
Bob, do you think you could possibly turn off that radio?
I'm (pause) trying to write a letter.
I don't want a double room.
I want a single room.
I'm sorry, sir, but I'm afraid 43 (pause) is the only single room available at the moment.
Just look what I've got.
Let me see.
(pause) Where on earth did you get it?
Oh bother the Sex Discrimination Act.
Surely they can't force me to take on a married woman.
They can't force you to, Mr. Clark, but (pause) you mustn't discriminate against someone just because they're married.
I'm glad I'm not a princess.
It must be a dreadful life.
(pause) I wouldn't mind being a prince.
I'm a reasonably hard-working person.
But (pause) I'm not a workaholic.
Had your brother been nervous about it himself?
Well, he didn't say, but possibly (pause) he had been.
