He says: ‘I have read the stories in the paper over the years and I came up with the idea for this one and gave it a go.

’The First World War is pretty topical at the moment with the centenary of it beginning – there has been a lot on the television about war poets.’

His other story was called Mind The Gap, about a ghostly railway porter.

Keith’s winning story has been recorded by Antony Costa, who is starring in Aladdin at the Kings Theatre in Southsea.

Keith says: ‘That reminds me of a romantic story I wrote about a Christmas pantomime called To Mother Goose.’
