The young men and women from Universities, the Royal Corps of Signals, the Intelligence Corps, the Royal Navy, the RAF and the WAAF and the Post Office who made up the Y Services were bound by very strict ties of secrecy to reveal nothing of their TOP SECRET work during the war and after the war. Their story has been told to a certain extent in some recent books but only now can it be revealed that the composite unit, the Royal Navy Royal Signals, predominantly ATS, and the Intelligence Corps, called WOYG (War Office Y Group) produced a house magazine, the Beaumanor Staff Magazine (BSM), from October 1941 till the end of the war.
Illustrated throughout by a distinguished cartoonist, it reveals in wit and humour, poetry and essays, and jokes and limericks the courage with which they met hard slog and disasters, having been bombed at Chatham and Chicksands in 1940 and 1941. This book reveals much about the events of the war and their impact on a large mixed service unit.
