An extended recollection from one of our regular contributors, Paul Croxson. Too long to include in Sub Rosa, his robust account of National Service in the mid-fifties will bring memories for some, entertainment and perhaps edification to all. Read about ‘two appalling weeks’ of bed-blocks, bulling, blancoing, even ‘ruined mince’. He touches on Alan Bennett, the Glorious Glosters, Jimmy Edwards, famous artists, and not-so-famous comrades in signals intelligence. We visit Blenheim Barracks, Maresfield, GCHQ, Monchengladbach and Langeleben, and the Museum of Ordure.
