Taking Stock - Cox's tale draws No.10 punters.
Number 10 Downing Street has turned to an accountant to ‘sell’ its new website and attract more surfers to the new ‘gateway’ to government. The ‘story’ of Captain Bruce Cox’s exploits as a member of the British Expeditionary Force is being told in the magazine section of www.number-10.gov.uk. Cox, a management accountant, was deployed to join the 450-strong regiment in May in Macedonia just as hostilities against the Serbs ended. He was in charge of the regiment’s movement in the Balkans, ensuring it had the resources to do the job. But one of his first jobs was less glamorous – he was sent in to action against weevils in the bread of a local bakery.
