Re­mem­ber­ing Ron­ald

The Observer - - Comment & Analysis -

In the ar­ti­cle “Once upon a time in the West Coun­try…” (New Re­view, last week), ref­er­ence was made to “the first death from a nerve agent since 1945”. On 6 May 1953, I was one of a party of six to take part in a trial in­volv­ing sarin. Five of the group sur­vived. LAC Ron­ald Mad­di­son did not. He should not be for­got­ten.
