It was ridiculous, Evelyn thought, to have no rank or title to call Rex by to others. You could think of and refer to your late husband as the Colonel, the Major, even, at a pinch, as the Captain - though that was a little vulgar this far after the war. But in no way, even as a joke, could you refer to him as the Sergeant.
