At the end of the Second World War many of our boys sustained severe attacks of entertainment at the hands of Lance-Corporal Milligan and his jazz band.
Outbreaks occurred in Rome, Venice, Vienna and Krumpendorf (that well-known groin disease), and no soldier escaped the tortures that were inflicted by the Combined Services Entertainment.
But while Tommy suffered, Milligan, newly demobbed, became more and more spazonkled, nay, spazonkified with Toni, the beautiful ballerina. Honestly. He's got the photographs to prove it.
In Italy, in love and in civvies, could Milligan forget his native Catford? You bet your life he could!
