Martin Bell / Edmond Blunden

Posted by colin on Sat, Dec 24 2016 at 11:43 AM CST:

I met Martin Bell on The Queen Victoria Cruise Ship.He was giving talks and there was a photo of him as an Infantry corporal (I forget the Regiment)He served in Cyprus in 1958.He told me of a Poet who was an officer in the Royal Sussex Regiment called Edmond Blunden and worth a GOOGLE.He told me one of his own poems which I found amusing which I shall repeat and I apologise to Colonel Arnold before I do .It is as follows
If you wish to avoid mishaps,
On a day of confrontation,
Just remember that OFFICERS and maps,
Are a dangerous combination

Mery Xmas to all
