Book Bargain of the Day

Bought for £2 in a remaindered bookshop in Northampton today:

RIGSBY: I suppose you come from an old family?


RIGSBY: Yes. Born to it. Same in the war. My old captain - he came from a good family - not like these tu'penny ha'penny gentlemen you get today. He always carried a stick and smoked a pipe. I never saw him ruffled. When Jerry opened up he'd just lean on his stick and say, "Where do you think that's coming from, sergeant?" Everyone would leap for cover but not the captain.

PHILIP: What happened to him?

RIGSBY: (winces) He got blown up by a shell.
