Nissen hut (IMG 2902)

<ul class="bbc">
<li>Close-up of one of the army nissen huts (Royal Engineers pre-REME) with a milk float standing waiting outside. Anyone who&#39;s seen CARRY ON SPYING will remember &#39;Milch-mann&#39;, the enemy agent dressed as a milkman who gets away with top secrets to Vienna (of all places). The painting is to resemble wartime camouflage, although being next to a station with heavy freight traffic it wouldn&#39;t have mattered much if it wasn&#39;t camouflaged! Still, can&#39;t argue with Top Brass, can we?</li>
