By Spike Milligan

'At Victoria station the R.T.O. gave me a shuttle warrant, a white feather and an image of Hitler marked 'This is your enemy'. I searched each compartment, yet he wasn't at the train'. Spike Milligan's at the march, blitzing pal and foe alike together with his uproarious memories of military existence from enlistment to the touchdown at Algiers in 1943. Bathos, pathos and gales of drunken laughter, and insane army goonery explode in superlative Milliganese.

There was no such distance! FIVE MILES!?!? That wasn’t a run, that was deportation! ” The defenders of England rose wraith-like from their blankets.
