I do apologise. I hadn't realised you were out there maintaining the colonies for Her Majesty. It must be truly awful, the heat, endless and useless sand on the beaches instead of good quarrying rock, terrible cold stuff that just passes for beers, the local population of convicts etc, still I am sure that the plantations and farms will earn a valuable income for the Empire. I will put a word in for something suitable, perhaps a BEM.
I have the honour to be,
Your loyal Servant,
