We joined the ‘Local Defence Volunteers’ or ‘Homeguard’ as it was known as.
Oh yes, and we also had some trouble from the A.R.P. Warden as well…
Captain Montgomery and Sergeant Wimpey had a difficult decision to make when they had to defuse an unexploded bomb.
Who would do it?
For the Captain there was no choice. For starters it couldn’t possibly be himself because he was far too important!
So who from all the others could do this dangerous job?
Who was dispensable?
Well there was only one person who they wouldn’t miss and that was Private Feathers who didn’t have a lot going for him!
But to their surprise he diffused the bomb and saved the day.
This led us onto to thinking about: ‘How much do you think you are worth’?
Well in God’s eyes we were all worth a tremendous amount – He sacrificed His Son Jesus for us to bring us back to Himself.
I started on my Faith Journey in 1976 whilst on my sandwich year from college.
Since then I’ve not been restrained to any one denomination – believing that local Church is always important. Through career moves and life changes this has enabled me to play a part in the Assembly of God Church, Elim, various New Church Groupings, Brethren, Anglican and Baptist Churches.
I am married to Jackie and we live in Cambridgeshire in the UK.
