Bonus Army bonus

Writer Michael Cowgill interviewed author Thomas Allen as part of Michael's research for his story "Skip Dillon, Son of the B.E.F."
There was a photograph of two kids in a makeshift boxing ring, and when we tracked those two guys down, they still were around, and we were able to interview them, and again, we got a picture of the family side of the Bonus Army.
