TOM – Quiet, bookish desperate to ‘do his bit’

EDDIE – Immature, overwhelmed and a follower

CLIVE – Doctor, a quiet chap but more confident and assured than he appears. Had a relationship with ANNIE but has settled for DAISY.

COLIN (The Barman) – Assertive, tries to keep the peace, knows everyone.

SUSAN – WAAF OFFICER but recognises that this can be an issue, takes while to rouse, protective.

FLO – a landgirl, brash and loud but ‘heart of gold’ type, she believes strongly in what is right.

DAISY – Very much the English Rose type, Easily lead, stubborn to her own detriment. A bit naive.
