The newspaper is dated October 6 2012 so it can't be that old news.

I read them in places such as Colchester, Waynes Keep, Bielefeld, Corradina Heights, and Shepton Mallet, where there was little chance of enjoying yourself.....

Lots of the older blokes read them, I guess the Paderborn connection helped as my unit (1420H) had spent time there in the late 60's.
