Cuthbert – A Collaborated Story by GRS (G) and CSF (C).

G: Cycling past Jim Clerk & Sons Apothecary on the High Street, Cuthbert realised that he had left his dynamo in the ‘backwards’ mode and was already well into the 1920s…

C: … that’s when it struck…

G: … the Glorious First World War, when millions of men were healed to live again.

C: “Splinge!”
