Saw this book, a collection of personal accounts, newspaper extracts, poetry and songs at half price and was wondering whether to buy it or not as I was familiar with some, although by no means all, of the contents.

A typographical error made up my mind to have it.

Ivor Novello's "Keep The Home Fires Burning", second verse,

"Overseas there came a pleading,

"Help a nation in distress",

And we gave our glorious ladies

Honour bade us do no less."

Apart from this it is a good read with some familiar, but much unfamiliar, to me at least, items.

:lol: - I like it - try to placate the enemy by handing over our wimmin. I wonder what Flashman would have made of such a caddish strategy?
