    Barrack-Room Ballads

    Kenneth Cranham presents a selection of his favourites from Rudyard Kipling's 1892 collection of poems, which were inspired by the stories of enlisted soldiers he had met and drew on the rhythms and style of music hall songs.
  2. Bump - just about to start
  3. Is one to assume you are a keen fan of Kipling aj?
  4. Can you tell? He's one of the great talents, more relevant today than most of the post War writers who tried to bury his reputation.

  6. Wonderful poems, badly recited by Cranham.

    But wonderful, nonetheless.
