Good classic comedy

Love on a branch line by John Hadfield is a gem of civil servant comedy. Jasper Pye is ready to thow off the shackles of civil servantdom after hearing his girl say he is boring. Before he can actually resign, he finds himself shuttled off to Arcady to close down a WWII research tank housed at an old estate. Instead he get sucked into the whirlwind of Flamborough Hall and the Lord's tempting daughters. Just a delightful book.
