It has been suggested that my posts on this subject are a little too flippant and not perhaps as serious as the subject demands and they may have a point.
I was watching a fabulous documentary by Julian Clary about Noel Coward recently when I suddenly remembered that, “In which we serve” and “Brief Encounter” were two of my favourite films.
“In which we serve” was made in 1942 and was a propaganda film to help the war effort and tells the story of a Captain E V Kinross played by Coward and the ships in which he serves.
I’m feeling more optimistic about the outcome of Coronavirus by the sheer mention of the film and hoping my readers will view this post as propaganda in the Corona war, for as Churchill said, “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”
Surely during the war you had to have the mindset that “it won’t be me, some other bugger will cop it but not me” and perhaps this may be a useful way to view our current situation. Keep going, keep optimistic, keep your pecker up, try to find that wartime spirit and keep calm and carry on. I wish you all good luck.
