English spelling wasn't standardized for hundreds of years, Shakespeare famously didn't even spell his own name consistently. Things have relaxed somewhat here in recent years, schools here now allow US & UK spellings (this forum has an AmE spellchecker). Supposedly "blighty" is roughly derived from an Indian expression, rather than the more obvious blight/mildew that seems to get everywhere here due to the constant dampness :(.
