67 But he did Henderson less than justice, for he was able to forge a very close relationship with the King which was unusual for a foreign ambassador. '68 At the time Henderson wrote to a Foreign Office colleague, My sixth winter in the Belgrade trenches is the worst of all. The zest has gone out of it with King Alexander gone. 72 This partiality had some striking consequences. 73 His tendency to be indiscreet, in this instance in the Yugoslav cause against the Italians (who were in dispute with Yugoslavia over Trieste and Fiume), was marked enough to earn rebukes from Vansittart.

Vansittart had occasion to reprimand the errant Minister again on 13 February 1935, when Henderson had written in a tart manner to Sir Edward Boyle of the Treasury about the latter's efforts to counter IMRO (a Macedonian terrorist organisation) activities around Yugoslavia's frontiers.

In Belgrade he had despaired about getting the Foreign Office to see that Italy must make concessions to the Yugoslavs, whereas in Berlin he feared that the British were becoming Job's comforters to those, like the Austrians and the Czechs, whom they could not help. Henderson was vigorous, indeed zealous, in his efforts to improve Anglo-German relations from the moment he arrived in Berlin in April 1937. Yet already there were indications that his health had been fatally weakened, and the whole issue of his health has been neglected.
