by Roy MacGregor-Hastie
Mr. MacGregor-Hastie spent six months at Maralinga on the Nullarbor Plain of Australia building the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment. ' All we had to go on were a few tattered drawings which shrivelled in the heat..... On my first morning in the trench I said to my foreman: " I'm afraid I have never dug a trench before." He replied: " Mate, you'd be the only one if you had."'
