Chapter 3: Money for Old Rope

Southern Reporter cutting

“The drawers of the desk were empty but for several Kit Kat biscuits. Clare explained that my predecessor had a fondness for Kit Kats and coffee. ‘And the guy before him was obsessed with flags.’

   ‘Flags?’

   ‘Yes he wanted a wall-mounted flagpole outside the building so that he could fly the BBC flag here in the Borders.’

   ‘Why?’

   ‘So that he could mark Royal birthdays and deaths. He wrote lots of letters to London about it but he had no joy.’

   ‘Who did he write to?’

   ‘I’m not sure. There might be a Head of Flags.’

   ‘Really? I suppose it’s possible.’ “
