"So, while I was at the Wade (but not as a result of my being there), I found out that Arne Zettersten's long-awaited memoir of JRRT has now been published. Unfortunately, it's in Swedish, a language I don't speak or read. I had assumed it would be in either English (the language of most of Tolkien's readership) or Danish (the author being a professor at the University of Copenhagen). So, here's hoping for an English translation."

Wayne, thanks for this. Unfortunately, most of our boxes are still buried by the detritus of moving house, so I couldn't check these references for myself; and the exhibition appears to be for GCHQ staff only, and I no longer know anyone working there, so I can't check the exhibits for myself.
