I Had to Go Sick

on BBC Radio 3

Julian Maclaren-Ross was one of the leading London literati of the forties and fifties and a wicked chronicler of his time. With his clove carnation and gold-topped stick, his fur coat and dark glasses, he cut a figure both Bohemian and dandy. He carried his gift for total recall of conversations from the army - from which he was invalided out - back into the bars of London. Harold
Pinter chooses and reads one of his classic comic stories of service life in the Second World War. I Had to Go
Sick reveals the crazed reality of military life.
Producer Ned Chaillet
