Originally published in 1973

Edited by C E Crutchley on behalf of the MGC OCA.

Mow re-published by Pen & Sword at £12.99 (paperback).

The original of this book is not hard to come by and its value lies in the contributions by veteran members of the corps. Obtaining the orignal of this book in the early 80s', the then chairman of the MGC OCA put me in touch with George Coppard with whom I subsequently corresponded.

Hmm... I think I paid less than that for the second printing in hardback (the edition with Horne inspecting the MGC (Motors) on the dustjacket), in pristine condition!

Am just reading this now, and while comprised of typical veteran's anecdotes, it is of interest certainly.  There is a tipped in note from the author, giving his address.  I cannot help wondering what became of the many other submissions he must have received from veterans of the MGC, but could not or did not include in the book.

 

Are his papers known to exist somewhere?  The note in this book gives his address in 1974.
