This early life wartime tale is filled with genuine characters corresponding to ‘Old Sam’ and his hilarious escapade within the churchyard with the vicar’s spouse, vicar and sexton; and later within the tale there's the sorrowful and scary story of the ‘Skimmington’ and terrible Gertie who had damaged the ‘moral code’.
