Don't know if this book has been commented on in these threads, but in case it hasn't then here goes. "Least we forget", by Max Arthur, a collection of anecdotes and short testimonies from combatants and civilians, during both world wars. Good entertainment and worth a read. One little poem that amused me was the one about the recycling of metals during WW2 for the war effort. My saucepans have all surrendered, The teapot is gone from the hob, The colanders leaving the cabbage, For a very different job. So now, when I hear on the wireless, Of hurricanes showing their "mettle", I see in a vision before me, A Messerschmitt chased by my kettle.
