The Railway Police

The book is about the railway police and most readers probably do not realise that it is the oldest police force in the United Kingdom and it can be traced back in history to 1826. I am no doubt that some historians of the Metropolitan Police will disagree. The book will follow the railway police through its history up until the present day and it will give you a flavour of what they are all about and of course what work they get involved in. I think some of you will be very surprised at what they actually do. I have written this book because I feel that they do not get the credit they deserve and are overlooked somewhat and I hope that after you have read this book you will agree with me that we do need the railway police as much as we need any other police.

Bladder  the Naked Dog  Skeleton Barbie and the Poet

A moving love story of a naked abandoned dog and a neglected bourgeois teenie, who try to escape their ghastly homes, to emigrate, to find happiness somewhere else on earth. Unfortunately the rusty emigration ship was sunk erroneously by a German submarine which escaped WW II. But Arthur, the poet, saved their lives, paddling along on his cello. After some discouraging adventures, where they stranded, they end up involuntarely as guinea pigs in a genetic laboratory. At last, Skeleton Barbies beautiful body could almost be restored, Arthur, the poet, joobbing as a nightporter of the Municipal Theatre, gives them shelter, washes the dishes and cheers them up, playing on his rotten cello at the wrong moments. But the longing for an ideal world forces forces our three brave companions inevitably back to the road, in their eternal search for happiness. This is a rather sarcastic black humored story, told and illustrated by Jeff Spoon the pseudonym of a rather wellknown theatre director and stage designer.

The Dog Who Could Fly

“A thoroughly enjoyable story of heroism and true friendship” (Publishers Weekly, starred review), this Sunday Times top ten bestseller is the true account of a German shepherd who was adopted by the Royal Air Force during World War II, flying countless combat missions and surviving everything from crash-landings to parachute bailouts—ultimately saving the life of his owner and dearest friend. In the winter of 1939 in the cold snow of no-man’s-land, two loners met and began an extraordinary journey that would turn them into lifelong friends. One was an orphaned puppy, abandoned by his owners as they fled Nazi forces. The other was a different kind of lost soul—a Czech airman bound for the Royal Air Force and the country that he would come to call home. Airman Robert Bozdech stumbled across the tiny German shepherd—whom he named Ant—after being shot down on a daring mission over enemy lines. Unable to desert the puppy, Robert hid Ant inside his jacket as he escaped. In the months that followed, the pair would save each other’s lives countless times as they flew together with RAF Bomber Command. Finally grounded after being injured on a flight mission, Ant refused to abandon his duty, waiting patiently beside the runway for his master’s return from every sortie, and refusing food and sleep until they were reunited. By the end of the war, Robert and Ant had become true war heroes, and Ant was justly awarded the Dickin Medal, the “Animal VC.” With beautiful vintage black-and-white photos of Robert and Ant, The Dog Who Could Fly is a deeply moving story of loyalty in the face of adversity and the unshakable bond between a man and his best friend.

Dog Dirt Doris

Anzio, Italy, 1944. Allied forces storm the front line, while fighters patrol the skies, keeping Germany's Luftwaffe at bay. Queen Alexandra's Nurses tend to wounded soldiers as the air raid siren wails and prepares the field hospital for another attack. Florence, 1945. Down the cobbled street a handsome Italian strolls hand in hand with a beautiful British nurse, it is easy to see they are in love. London, 1966. Two lonely vagabonds huddle in a shop doorway, shielding themselves from pounding rain and relying on each other for warmth. As with all lives, they should not be judged on the merits of the surrounding in which the person is first encountered, but by the complete understanding and quality of the person, if they should then be judged at all. Dog Dirt Doris, by H.O. Ward, is a fictitious representation of a life that journeys through the trauma of war as a tender and caring Queen Alexandra Nurse, to romance in Renaissance Florence, and a lost and tragic existence as a homeless vagabond on the streets of London.
