Bridge on the Both
Boye Brogeland’s courage and tenacity in removing the pair of cheats from the world stage of competition bridge (‘House of Cards’, March) deserves the highest praise. Reading this story brought to mind my first and only encounter with this fascinating card game back in 1945 when I was on board the troop carrier KPM Both.
About 300 troops crowded on the open deck, bored stupid with
the limited activities available in the cramped space … but then we discovered BRIDGE! All previous boredom appeared to have gone overboard. RON SEWELL
