hot off the press

My dad's 'PoW' diary is now available in book form:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Till-We-Meet-Again-Gunner/dp/154404870X#

If anyone who reads his story feels moved to write a review on Amazon, that would be very welcome.

(These are my complimentary copies I've just received in the post to send out - I'm not about to read it again four more times over!)

I want to say a huge public thank you to Ian Douglas who has so generously undertaken this publishing task.

My dad tried to have his diaries published in 1955; I tried in 2000; I had no idea that one day the time would be right.

This coming week, Wednesday June 21st, sees the 75th anniversary of the fall of Tobruk where my dad was captured along with 30,000 or so men.

Thanks, Ross @scrivna for letting me include the details on my 365 page.
A precious book. You can be proud of your father, a hero.

I had to search the book on my Amazon account because yours opens the Amazon/UK link but I found it and ordered it. In dollars instead of pounds.

That's helpful as I thought we had to wait a bit for it to get on Amazon.com so that's quicker than expected.
