During the First World War Alf Stokes and James Twelvetrees, two private soldiers, save the life of officer Teddy Meldrum. He is eternally grateful. In 1927 James is working as the footman in the house of Lord George, Teddy's older brother, and hopes to fill the vacancy created by the recently-departed butler. However Alf, a former butler, and his daughter Ivy, have just lost their jobs as music hall performers. Alf comes to the Meldrum house and, to James's annoyance, is made the new butler thanks to Teddy and some references acquired by blackmail. Ivy gets a job as a maid but Alf keeps their relationship secret and she assumes her mother's maiden name, Teasdale. Written by
