PRIVATES ON PARADE Standing respectful. A line of souls in memorial status.
Having passed life on. Someone's brother, father, son. Sometimes sisters,
mothers too. Have served their time, by choice of late. In world wars past. Choice
was collected. Disputed. Refuted. Rejected. Almost tarred and feathered.
Labelled, conscientious objector. In days of old, dragons formed a tank in
command. Ancient. Guard of honour. Strong. Proud. On battlefields grovel.
Nothing much has changed.

... feels used as cannon fodder for a 'weary' empire against the 'up~and~coming'
Communists in Malaya, and Leslie Thomas's Virgin Soldiers (1966), with its stock
~issue 'terrorists' and 'bandits', seems to accede to official discourse on the
conflict, neither novel hesitates about the terminology of war, suggesting that the
requirements of the novel of masculine initiation make their own demands on
language. The drag performance troupe of Peter Nichols's Privates on Parade (
1977), ...

5. PRIVATES. ON. PARADE. ONCE THE WAR in Europe had ended, Geoff
assumed it was safe to rejoin his family in Glossop where, most likely, he
continued his career as a market trader. According to an account he gave
twentyfive years later, the illusion of safety was destroyed by an unexpected
phone call from the police in late 1946. He remembered the policeman saying, '
You should be down the mine,' to which he replied, 'Well, I've been ill.' As a
deserter, he faced a potentially ...

The National Health (1969) contrasts melodramatic, televised soap operas about
the medical profession with the messy horrors of a hospital ward; Privates on
Parade (1977) looks at the anomalies of the decision to entertain troops at the
front in war-time with variety-shows and intimate revue; Poppy (1982) uses late
Victorian pantomime with its seeming innocence to explore the high moral tone in
which that age took such pride, Richard Allan Cave (London) Deconstructing ...

We stayed in a downtown Holiday Inn and took the kids to Disneyland. There's a
Polaroid snap of us in a garden on Malibu Beach, home of a friend-of-a-friend
from the Midwest, a day when we swam in a sea fished by diving pelicans and
Rod Steiger dropped in for a drink. But in London and at Chez Magnou, during

period. One night at a party I asked Antonia Fraser if she'd prefer Privates on

By the time I became aware of it, around 1982, it had already been bleached by
more than twenty years' worth of Times Square sunlight, its type faded to pale
Crest-blue against a yellowing french-vanilla background. The VI/hirly Girly was
probably a 1950s establishment, from the looks and lexicon of the sign. The
lettering, block printing with vaguely exaggerated dimensions—the arms of the ys
arcing like wishbones—tried to mimic some 79 PRIVATES ON PARADE Not
