The long grass can rarely have looked more attractive ...

© English Heritage.NMR - thanks again to EH National Monuments Record for this verdant shot of the huts up to the left as you came into Ullenwood camp. From the series taken by Michael Hesketh-Roberts as part of the "Cold War project" in July 1999.  The long grass, inevitably, leads me to recall Richard Savage's periodic impassioned public appeals in the evenings after supper to the female diggers entreating them, at Lofty's behest, not to leave their contraceptive pills in the long grass. Lofty's fear was always alleged to be that the foxes would find the pills and eat them and then there would be no more fox cubs and that would be a sad thing.  Not sure about the science there.
