I am in shock. I have only just discovered that my paternal grandfather was an ARP warden during the second world war – and that there was a scandal when he was caught “carrying on” in the blackout with one of his female staff. I don’t care a fig for his peccadillos. I never even met the man. But the thing is, all these years I have been modelling myself on Private Godfrey, only to discover that I am descended from Hodges. Oh heavens. I think I need to be excused.
Put That Bloody Light Out
