The Royal Observer Corps Underground Monitoring Posts
The Royal Observer Corps Underground Monitoring Posts

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 28 Jun 2012
Although not a former observer myself, I am very familiar with the ROC underground posts having conducted a photographic survey of all 1563 of them between 1997 - 2004. For anyone with an interest in the ROC post-WW2 this book is an absolute must. Well researched, crammed with photographs most of which are in colour. As well as a detailed history of the ROCs nuclear role there are descriptions with photographs of all the post instruments and a chapter on restored posts which have sprung up all over the country in recent years. As a post owner myself I find myself referring to this book on an almost daily basis. If the print quality wasn't so good it would be worn out already! Put a copy in your basket now, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cold War Bunkers, 19 Dec 2011
This review is from: Cold War Bunkers (Hardcover)
I think this would make an ideal Christmas present for a loved one or for yourself. Heavily illustrated on high quality paper. I guess I am probably biased as I wrote it!

I wanted a light weight but sturdy tripod that would fit in my hand luggage when flying. This one fits the bill nicely.

3.0 out of 5 stars The York, Beverley and Market Weighton Railway: v. 1, 19 Dec 2011
The York, Beverley and Market Weighton Railway: v. 1 is not one of the better books I have bought recently, more research would have helped. This is Volume 1, I gather Volume 2 was never published.
