Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson

"To tell Mortimer that he had never begrudged Bertie the gun had been a damn lie. Sitting on the seafront, his back pressed against the wooden slats of a park bench, the Major turned his face up to the sun."

Bertie was the Major's brother and was supposed to leave the Major their father's gun in his will, but he did not, which the Major blames on both Bertie's wife, and the family attorney.
