The third of Dave Wilson's books about his time with the London Fire Brigade, this has a good range of anecdotes and is extremely funny at times. Having read all three of his books, I am pleased to note that this one is much more accurately written than the second, and is therefore a considerably easier read- much more like his first book, in fact. Well worth a look if you like autobiographical writing about life in the emergency services. Most of the incidents are from the seventies, some from the sixties, and obviously things have changed since then, so there is also an element of 'history' to it. I thought the chapters on the firemen's strike of 1977 would be boring, but this was not the case, and some of the most amusing incidents are related in this part of the book.

There are three books written by this wonderful man and they are just amazing.

They are written by my Uncle about his time as a fireman in london.

Amazing read, funny, sad an over all amazing set of books.

Well worth the read.

The author, Dave Wilson, has wriiten three books about the London Fire Brigade. What would have been an interesting story has been spoiled by atrocious grammer.
If these books could be edited by someone with even a GCE O Level in English, they would be far better. It is a great shame because it is a work of great human interest.
