Poem on the Underground

Earlier in the week I came across this notice board at Tufnell Park Tube station. It was an unexpected encounter, and rather moving. Does someone at the station regularly update the board with new words? I don’t know. I’ll check next time I visit. Spike Milligan served as a bombardier in the Royal Artillery during the Second World War. He wrote The Soldiers at Lauro having buried fellow soldiers who had been killed by a direct hit on their battery.
