Published: Edinburgh: The Pentland Press, 2001, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: This unique collection of National Service medical officers reminiscences comes from the years 1947-61, the only period in British history when there was conscription during peace time. Its compilation was requested by the British Medical Association and Wellcome, in order to record the memories of conscript doctors in book form making them accessible to all. The total collection will be retained in perpetuity by Wellcome, and not made public until twenty years after the death of the last contributor.
This magical book will appeal to those who shared the National Service experience and those who did not but who possess a keen interest in this fascinating period in our history.
