    That`s actually pretty crazy that they had to add a set of rules because of a war.

    No, it means the British didn`t give a poo that here was a war going on in their golf course, whereas Americans would probably suspend the game if it started raining.

    Psychology was an important part of the war, so this sort of thing mattered. Endurance and defiance was necessary, so things that seem odd from our perspective were needed to keep people sane. It`s not easy to sleep hoping you`ll still be alive to wake up and find out if you still have a home and how many of the people you know were killed that night. Then do it again the next night. And the next. And the next.

    Random example - hearing a klaxon will still make my mother pale with fear. It was the air raid warning. 70 years isn`t long enough to get over that.
