No News from Guernsey: The Diary of Lt. Desmond Mulholland MC

by Peter Jesson Peacock Press c/o The Guernsey Press Shop

Desmond Mulholland was born in Wandsworth, South London 17th July 1919 to John Edward Mulholland who was an Army Intelligence Officer in World War I and Dorothy Madeline Mulholland, nee Moorhouse (sister of the author's grandmother and Desmond's aunty). Desmond and the author's father (Russell Jesson) first met in about 1922.  They used to spend their school holidays together. Later they shared digs in London when they were both studying. 

This book helps readers to appreciate the important contribution that Lt Desmond Mulholland's diary makes to our understanding of the Second World War, and in particular, of the Guernsey people who, in so many different ways, played a part in the events that unfolded during those terrible years.

The diary provides a fascinating picture of the tedious and mundane routine of life inside the Prisoner of War Camps and of one man's attitude to it.  He coped by keeping occupied, by educating himself from other prisoners and writing his diary.  After liberation he returned to England but tragically died from monoxide poisoning from a faulty heater.
