Just when you think you know the place you grew up in, something sneaks out of the woodwork and wallops you one.� I've just discovered that one of the soldiers who lived in Rugeley Camp during WWI was none other than John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, thanks to someone googling this page with the string "Tolkein Rugeley".

Since Cannock Chase was originally depleted due to ship-building, then farmed to produce wood for pit-props, I wonder if that's where he got the bit about Saruman chopping the trees down?
