Bridge on the Both

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Letters -

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
