|205||Blog: A second bite of a dragon's tooth

|210||Blog: Invasion defences
I've just watched part 2 of Channel 4's documentary The Real Dad's Army, originally aired last Monday. The series so far has been very good, and I can't wait for the final part, which will look at the secret British resistance movement.
