Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

The wife of Captain Menditt - who has somewhat mysteriously disappeared - calls upon her friend Miss Debenham for a little sympathetic chat. The young lady is out, but has left a note asking Mrs Menditt to wait, and mentioning an 'old Warrior' who it seems 'turns up' and 'potters about' being 'fed up' with his wife. While Mrs Menditt is puzzling over this communication she catches sight of her husband's coat hanging over the back of a chair, and she jumps at the conclusion that he is the 'Warrior' alluded to as being 'fed up' with his wife, and that the latter is none other than herself. After she has vented her jealousy in a monologue and on the telephone she discovers that, although the coat was once her husband's, it is now the property of Miss Debenham's occasional manservant, who had been Captain Menditt's orderly and had saved his life.
