Re National Service

TWO years ago, you were kind enough to publish my letter requesting your readers to contact me if they had any interesting National Service stories which they would like including in my forthcoming book entitled National Service Exploits.

I had a good response from them and the book has now been published. It contains 121 stories and photos in 392 pages.

It gives the experiences of 18 to 21-year-old National Servicemen between 1945 and 1963, involving 30 regiments in 30 countries in all three services. Some of the stories are humorous, some dramatic, but all very readable, and the book is selling at £15.95, which includes postage and packaging.

It can be obtained from me at or on 01642 274261.
