Freedom to Read Week: Nastiness is Found

The Windsor Daily Star, 16 November 1940


  1. Wonderful - I just can see Sgt Watson shouting "Open up! It's the Morality Squad!"

    1. Yes, the war has entered its second year and the Windsor Police spring into action, making certain to keep information on "social diseases" away from our fighting boys.

      My favourite part of the story is the vague "seven or eight". I don't mean to suggest that Sgt Watson squirrelled something away in his garage, but it does make one wonder.

  2. What's that line from APOCOLYPSE NOW?
    "We train our young men to drop fire on people, but their commanding officers won't let them write 'fuck' on their airplanes."
