The Bells Go Down: The Diary of a London A.F.S. Man

£24.99

Product description

A story of the life of a London AFS man who joined the Fire Service on the outbreak of war. It gives a vivid and moving picture of the excitments, perils and rescues which are the highlights of life in the Fire Service during wartime, but also reveals, as only a diary can, the warm companionship, heroic devotions to one's fellows and patient acceptance of dull and menial duties which have consecrated the Fire Service into something essentially noble.

First edition, 1942. Small tears to top and bottom of dustcover. Front endpaper possibly torn out. Clean throughout.
