There was a radio story about Godwin & Searvogel. They point out that Godwin finished his record after World War 2 started. To comply with blackout laws, he taped his bike lights to limit them to a glow. And Godwin had to deal with food rationing. On the other hand, Searvogel had difficulties that Godwin did not: Searvogel’s effort was low-budget, while Godwin had strong sponsorship.
