We first met Ukridge in Love Among the Chickens, 1906 and 1921. He was then
married to his beloved and loving Millie. In these ten stories he has gone
back to bachelorhood and he only meets Millie and gets engaged to her in
the last story.
These stories are told by 'Corky' Corcoran, who had been at Wrykyn with
Ukridge and to whom Ukridge was always a threat - borrowing money and
clothes. Here we meet 'Battling' Billson, the soft-hearted heavyweight
boxer whom Ukridge is promoting; Ukridge's rich Aunt Julia; George Tupper
of the Foreign Office, another school friend of Ukridge's; Evan Jones, a
Welsh revivalist whose preaching makes Battling Billson think fighting is
wicked; Bowles, Corky's ex-butler landlord in Ebury Street; Flossie, the
barmaid, Billson's fiancée; and Mabel Price of Clapham Common to whom
Ukridge becomes perilously engaged. And finally Lady Lakenheath, Millie's
Aunt Elizabeth with a multilingual parrot, Leonard.
