These foolish things remind me of … the Gestapo

From today’s obituary in The Guardian of Tory historian and Peel* biographer Norman Gash – Norman Gash –

“He must have been one of the last British people to have attended a Hitler rally. When the second world war came, he was working in University College London under Sir John Neale. Gash joined the army and rose to major in the field of intelligence. He specialised in debriefing SS officers, and could be nostalgic when a room lined with steel filing cabinets reminded him of a Gestapo headquarters.”

*Robert, not John.
