The Flying Scotsman Pocket-Book

B1887

The publisher has established a fine series of pocket-books and pocket manuals. This new book forms part of that series and in a way is difficult to review. It is priced aggressively, even though a hard back binding has been employed to allow it to survive frequent handling. That and the convenient size makes it very suitable as a gift to a young boy or girl who is developing an interest in the subject. It is also a low enough price that a young person could afford to buy a copy. However, it contains such a wealth of information that is a comprehensive review of its subject, that it makes a very worthy addition to even the most sophisticated library of a dedicated enthusiast.

The Lifeboat, Courage on Our Coasts

B1886

This is an outstanding photo essay of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. The photographer is also a crew member of the Torbay lifeboat which may explain why these photographs are so compelling. Any writer or photographer needs a special understanding and identification with the subject to step above the ordinary. Each picture paints a story and what an amazing story each is. HRH Prince William Duke of Cambridge has written the foreword and as an RAF SAR Helicopter pilot based at RAF Valley, he has had direct experience of working with RNLI crews in some testing conditions.
