I used to have a guitar case with a crack in the neck, caused by British Rail when an enthusiastic porter closed a door too quickly and caught the end!
Glad to hear news oif Don Bilston, but sorry he's affected by deafness. Must be all those evenings spent in folk clubs!
Incidentally, the railway line I referred to above was the principal freight line in 1943/4 for the run up to D-Day, supplying all the depots in southern England. In the Great War there was a US camp on the Berkshire Downs, served by what was then called a 'halt'. In the wake of the War, numbers of the lads waiting for demob there died in the great 'flu epidemic. I have seen a grim photo of waggon-loads of coffins waiting at Blewbury Halt to be loaded for shipment home.
