P/M940872 Chronicle of a Cold War Eavesdropper by John Bishop

John Bishop was one of the few hundred young men specially selected post-war by the Royal Navy to do their National Service as Coders (Special), a group trained as Russian linguists and employed in northern Germany to listen to Soviet radio circuits. His reminiscences here take the form of a long (33 pp) and very personal poem, originally composed in the early 2000s and in part triggered by finding various memorabilia tucked away in a drawer.
