Have your say

I don’t want to ram my latest book down your throats, but it is selling well and thank you all.

What I do want to ask is, if you recognise an incident in the book, know the names of people in photographs or have a record of your own of the blitz on the city, please get in touch.

You may have unpublished photographs which you might think are quite boring, but to others could be a mine of information.

I am already researching another book, so if you have anything to say, even constructive criticism, please let me know.
