A steel-scintillator sandwich counter was used as a simple and highly efficient detector for both neutrons and protons. The validity of simple approximations for the detection efficiency was investigated by experimental tests and a detailed Monte Carlo calculation of the nuclear and electromagnetic cascades in the counter.
