Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.…
Of Major Vandeleur, one of the most beautiful characters found among the Christians of the Crimean War, another officer who knew him at Gibraltar said to his biographer, Miss Marsh: "Everybody on the old rock liked Vandeleur, and regretted him when he left us. He was 'blue' you know (i.e., religious), but then he was such a bright blue! No gay man, I should think, was ever half so cheerful and charming as a companion."
(J. F. B. Tinling, B. A.)
