"I didn’t want a ‘Blighty’ now"

Blighty is a British English slang term for Britain, deriving from the Hindustani word vilāyatī (pronounced bilāti in many Indian dialects and languages) meaning a foreigner. During that the First World War, a Blighty wound -- a wound serious enough to require recuperation away from the trenches – i.e. to take someone home, back to Blighty - but not serious enough to kill or maim the victim—was hoped for by many, and sometimes self-inflicted.
