Keep the home fires burning... There was a competition for a new patriotic song... probably by a newspaper, the Daily Mail did a lot of that sort of stuff back then... nothing changes, does it?
Anyway it was big. Ivor Novello's mother kept on at him to enter, but a newspaper competition was all a bit beneath a 'proper composer'.
So one night she sat at his piano and butchered the instrument for an hour or so, before he got fed up.
"Well you write one then... I will if it will get me some peace and quiet." So he did, knocked it out in 45 mins and duly won it or so the tale goes.
