FREE BOOK FIND: National Service - A Slot in Life by A.F.J. Dawson

FREE to download TODAY is National Service - A Slot in Life: "It was never like this in Sungei Besi!"  by A.F.J. Dawson (Click for UK , Australia, Canada or India download).  Why not download a copy before it goes back to full price?

BRITISH NATIONAL SERVICE was declared absolutely necessary and implemented by the current British government following the end of World War II. Depleted numbers of servicemen from Army, Navy and Air Force found the Government compelled to swell the ‘Ranks’. Not only for the Home Front but to maintain a shared commitment in Europe and the Commonwealth countries. 

IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE today for people under the age of 50 to imagine what life was like in Great Britain some 50 years ago. World War II had only ended in 1946 and rebuilding and redevelopment was still badly needed in many towns and cities. Many office and work places were so ancient or outdated that today’s factory and health inspectors would be aghast! 

I don't intend this to be an autobiography but the story of one British National Serviceman who served in Korea, Japan and Malaya during the mid-fifties.
