Fifty-Six: The Story of the Bradford Fire
Fifty-Six: The Story of the Bradford Fire
by Martin Fletcher
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.88

5.0 out of 5 stars Harrowing first hand account of this disaster., 22 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant first hand account of this terrible incident, I was a fire officer at the time and remember watching it live on television, I then visited the ground a few days later with a colleague. With proper marshals this was an incident that should not have happened, but Martin's account raises serious questions about the owner and how this fire started.

Moorgate: Anatomy of a Railway Disaster
Moorgate: Anatomy of a Railway Disaster
by Sally Holloway
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A Harrowing account of an underground disaster, 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a fireman who attended this incident, I can say that this is a very good account of the whole incident starting from the time the driver clocked on for work that morning to the last day when they finally removed his body five days later. This has to have been one of the most difficult and harrowing incidents that the London Fire Brigade has ever dealt with. The devastation in the end of that tunnel can only be imagined, but this book goes some way to describe the terrible working conditions we faced in those crushed carriages working around trapped dead passengers in the hot and very smelly atmosphere at the end of platform 9.
This is a must read for anyone wanting to know how the Fire service tackled this awful disaster.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little camera, 15 Aug. 2014
I bought this camera to use in the car, it came with a variety of brackets including a suction cup, unfortunately my car does not have a surface smooth enough to use it, not even on the windscreen as the angle is to acute.
As for the camera it has performed brilliantly, the picture quality is very good and it is very easy to use.
If you want a quality camera at a reasonable price you will not find a better buy.

Very good, shows all aircraft in real time, and if you tap an individual aircraft it tells you where it's left and it's destination.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good value, 27 July 2014

It's not as complete as a full surround sound system, but it certainly enhances your viewing pleasure with very good bass sounds which brings films to life.
If you cannot afford a full system this is definitely the next best thing to have.


Underfire: The Dramatic Life of a London Fireman
Underfire: The Dramatic Life of a London Fireman
by Ray Chilton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Underfire, 13 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a retired London fireman I could relate to this book,especially as I served during part of the period the book covers.
This is an excellent read and gives the reader a good insight of how the LFB used to work, unfortunately due to H&S and weak management, firemen are now severely restricted in their ability to tackle fires from the inside as described in this book.
Life in the service in London was fantastic with each watch like a close knit family,which you get a flavour of in this book.
Now the government are hell bent on privatising this once proud service.
