A fellow tram passenger started talking with him, and offered to buy the leather sash, which the man's father was not interested in – they agreed on seven shillings and a sixpence. Later that week the man's father went to his allotment, where a sale was on. A friend of his told him there was a hedge he had on sale. Would he like it? Oh yes! 'How much have you got?' 'Seven shillings and a sixpence.' So they agreed, and the hedge that originated on a U-boot is still there. There are Blue Tits nesting in it this spring.
