    Summary

    "I can't be dead."

    Thomas stopped talking. His eyes darkened. "I can understand it being hard to come to terms with. Lord knows I felt the same way."

    "But the war is over," the Captain said. "I was just about to be discharged. I was about to leave Button House-"

    - and go into the new world.

    ***

    Nobody would ever believe it nowadays, but there was a time the Captain thought of a world without war.

    Summary

    One day, after showing up oddly late to one of the ghosts' clubs, the Captain claims he isn't in the right frame of mind to discuss the war. The other ghosts are shocked. There must surely be something terribly wrong with him. When he states the above and departs with no further explanation, they plague each other and Alison for answers.

    Meanwhile, the Captain stays firm inside his own mind and takes the day to himself. Of course, that won't stop the memories. The memories of, well... memories.

    Summary

    To say that living as a homosexual in the 1940s was a difficult thing to hide would be an understatement. Having feelings for a fellow soldier was an even trickier thing to hide, and to have that secret exposed to that very person was mortifying. However, the Captain didn’t realise that this would change both of their lives forever, literally.

    Summary

    The ghosts have been pestering Alison for new song recommendations; turns out that there’s only so many times you can host a music club before you start running out of songs to share. Hence why Alison was now sitting by the TV with her laptop creating playlists for each of the ghosts, filling them with songs that she thought they might enjoy.

    When a song about LGBTQ+ couples from history whose stories were largely hidden from the history books shows up in the recommended songs on the Captain’s playlist, Alison and some of the other ghosts encourage the Captain to share some stories about his previous Lieutenant who left for the North African front nearly 80 years ago.

    Summary

    The thing with endings was that they were always preceded by a beginning. It just so happened that beginnings were as a rule, almost always better than what followed them, unfortunately enough.

    A new programme replaces the Captain's precious Tank Battles, about life after the war and he is reminded of the person he was, and the love he once had. We follow him as his mind bounces back and forth between existing in the present and missing what is no longer. Yet no amount of pining can bring the past back... can it?

    "i never had one." he said monotonously.

    that wasn't expected.
