It all began when the soldiers found an abandoned printing press and dragged it around the battle fields with them. When it was destroyed by enemy fire, they simply found another one.
One modern day retailer in what appears to be a curio shop on You Tube offers bound copies of all Wiper Times editions at a reason price. He tells prospective buyers there nothing in The Times about The war specifically lest the paper fall into enemy hands. Just satire and levity of the world of 1916. Viewers of any era will however find Captain Robert's post war job interview a bit of a bollocks however. It seems some things never change.
Bollocks - This is a great English word with many excellent uses. Technically speaking it means
xxxxxx but is typically used to describe something that is no good (that's bollocks) or that someone is talking rubbish (he's talking bollocks). Surprisingly it is also used in a positive manner to describe something that is the best, in which case you would describe it as being "the dog's bollocks". Englishmen who live in America take great delight in ordering specialised registration plates for their cars using the letters B.O.L.L.O.X. Good eh?
