Storyline

The war comes home to roost so to speak when a bomb lands on the Bentinck hotel. No one is injured but Mr. Starr's dog was in the mews when the bomb hit and Fred is nowhere to be found. A Sergeant soon arrives to assess the situation and his assistant, a conscientious objector, forms a close relationship with Ethel. A newly married young couple, a Canadian Lieutenant and a young woman who had stayed at the Bentinck some years previously with her parents, arrive on their honeymoon. Written by garykmcd
