Quotation of the Week

5th August

High time, therefore, that my emergency, air-raid bag should...be demobilized[....] [T]he sides burst gladly apart, gaping wide, reminding me how difficult it was in 1940 to thrust inside every single thing that might be needed....

GB Stern, Benefits Forgot (1949)
