Live for music

In just under three months, England will go smoke-free. No more smoking in public places. I, for one, can’t wait. But it raises a dashed sticky question…

In the past, many decent chaps were saved from dastardly bullets by having a cigarette case in their top pocket. If fewer of these chaps are in the habit of carrying such things, what is to become of England?

Fortunately, a new form of personal protection has arisen in the form of the iPod. Kevin Garrad (3rd Infantry Division) apparently had his life saved – or at least avoided a nasty injury – by carrying one of these newfangled devices.
