The touching, heartwarming memoir of an ambulance driver in 1970s Britain
Exploding pressure cookers, a thwarted wife's deadly revenge and transvestites in distress - manning an ambulance in the seventies kept you on your toes.
Having survived the rites of passage as a probationer, Les Pringle now has to face up to the reality of life as an ambulance man in seventies Britain. He does this with humour and fortitude - two qualities which are essential if he is to cope with cases ranging from the absurd to the heart rending.
