packed structures

The size of this structure is 12 which is wrong. What am I missing?

typedef struct HeaderTag {
    ULONG          HeaderLength;
    CHAR             PackingType __attribute__ ((packed));
    USHORT         NumRows __attribute__ ((packed));
    USHORT         PackedSize __attribute__ ((packed));
    } HeaderType, *pHeaderType;

Also, I  have a lot of structures to pack. Is there nothing like a #pragma
pack(1) followed later by #pragma pack()?
