An article by Ron Sewell appeared in a recent Readers Digest magazine and is worth bringing to your attention.
"My first and only encounter with this facscinating card game (Bridge) was back in 1945 when I was on board the troop carrier KPM Both.
About 300 troops crowded on the open deck, bored stupid with the limited activities available in the cramped space ... but then we discovered BRIDGE! All previous boredom appeared to have gone overboard"
