Letter: Gentlemen's dilemma

Sir: Jo Brand (column, 29 March) must lead a very sheltered life. In this part of the country, the generation brought up with "officers' ladies, NCOs' wives, and other ranks' women", would be likely to give a very frosty reception to Jo Brand if she referred to any woman other than as a "lady", whereas the same word would make their daughters squirm. It's hell, I tell you.
