Hi all,

I have recently purchased surplus stocks of a little mountain rescue book I compiled back in 1999 and am selling off copies at a slightly reduced price of 3.95 + 1.25 P&P, or should kind person wish to pay full price of 4.95 then 1 will be donated to the Glossop Mountain Rescue Team, Derbyshire. Details of the book below:

`ALL IN A DAY`S WORK`
RAF MOUNTAIN RESCUE
in Snowdonia 1944 - 1946.

Crashed aircraft, Stranded or Injured climbers,lost hikers and fell walkers, Don`t worry! The Mountain Rescue Service will be there to help.
But ever wondered how Mountain Rescue teams were formed? Why they were formed? and who the pioneers were?
Then here is your answer.
This book is based on unofficial diaries of day to day events in the first Official RAF Mountain Rescue Unit at Llandwrog, Nr Caernarvon, North Wales, in WWII, It has all the callouts from January 1944 - Jan 46 in which no fewer than 22 aircraft accidents occurred aside from several incidents involving climbers and injured hikers.
The book has B/W 60 photos and a Roll of Honour to airmen who lost their lives in crashes in the mountains and at 112 pages long it is a lasting memorial to both airmen and rescue team members alike who gave their all it turbulent times.
Book is signed by the Author.
