Not really, but I was asked the other day. Here are some notes.

On Leonid Breznev, he wasn’t Stalin and he and I share birthdays, as in day of the year. Nixon launched the planes twice?

Much of my youth was pre submarine launched ICBMs, the primary means of nuclear weapons delivery was the air-forces. I both remember the testing the air raid sirens as I walked to school, and helping my Dad, who was a Civil Defence ARP warden on at least one exercise. I unrealistically played the role of a surviving victim.

I often joked that our house would be the London target for Soviet nuclear weapons, you can see it surrounded by the US Air-force bases, RAF Northolt and HMS Northwood. I have also pinned the Kroeger’s house in Ruislip.



Now I suppose I should write the piece.
