Forget all the fuss about the last living tommy bit, this is a really nice snap shot of one mans ordinary life which happened to include a spell in the trenches of WW1.
The book gives anyone of my age (42) a snapshot of what it was like to live through 2 world wars and the simple rural life that Harry has enjoyed.

I bought this webcam in error but i have to say i am delighted with it.
The software install takes far too long but can be speeded up by choosing not to install Creative Calendar or Photo Manager innitially as they are very much inferior to many other free programs in the market.
The configuration of the camera and sound was very straightforward and the picture and sound quality is very good.
The only slight issue i have had is with Microsoft Messenger which locks up sometimes during use but i would say this is more a problem with Messenger as i have used with Skype several times without any issues.
A good device at a reasonable price!
