This substantial historical article by Paul Croxson makes very timely reading as we mark the centenary of the outbreak of WWI. It runs to 18 pages of download including references and provides a very thorough historical document which will also complement the themes of our forthcoming "London Lunch with Lectures" scheduled for 10th April.
This fascinating story is told by Tony Cash (Russian linguist) and has its roots in the early 1950s when Tony was up at Oxford with John Bayliss. The article was first published in the newsletter of St Edmund Hall "The Aularian" and we are grateful to Tony for allowing us to reproduce it here.

This highly amusing tale comes from the mid 60s and includes an entertaining mix of characters - Brits, Americans - the Cavalry! Thanks to Peter J for sharing these memories.
