A Sister At Last
John Reed born in 1937, spent his childhood in the village of Ruskington, Lincolnshire, until he joined the Royal Navy as a 16 year old in January 1954. This book is based on random jottings, both left over from previous publications and many others from his career in the Royal Navy and his life as a civilian. Split loosely into three sections is covers his life before leaving school, service in the Royal Navy and life after.
In essence this is a random list of jottings however they make excellent bedtime reading and would make an ideal stocking filler or gift both for others of his generation and for those who would like to know more of what it was really like to grow up during and after WWII. A few of the stories included are extended versions of those in the Ruskington Book.
He has published two other titles ‘Ruskington As I Remember It’ and ‘The Scandal of Nathaniel Thorold’ both of which are available through this site.
