Professor's pet raven

"C.H.K. Marten was the first of my teachers to make me realise that characters of history had once been human beings like us," Lord Home later recalled. "Marten had a raven which used to sit on the back bench of the Division. If anyone was inattentive or slow, at a signal from him, the bird would nip the offender's ear. There were not many laggards in that class."
