If you could send me (Carl Hostetter) a clean scan I'm pretty sure I could transcribe most if not all of it. (I've seen, and transcribed, worse from Tolkien's pen!)

I for one am pretty fond of them, and have collected them assiduously.

Used copies of Sisam's Fourteenth Century Verse and Prose containing Tolkien's Vocabulary can be had for a song, much cheaper and much more attractive than these modern photocopied "reprints".

Well, we can't expect reporters to actually do research on their subject, can we, W&C? ;)

I notice this bit in the Telegraph version of the article (http://bit.ly/m818w): "A record of [Tolkien's] training carries the word ''keen'' beside his name." This leads the GCHQ historian to remark that ''While he didn't sign up as was probably intended, he did complete three days' training and was 'keen' to do more." I think it plain that "keen" was written only to indicate the pronunciation of "Tolkien" (distinguishing it from "kine")....
