Our low profile trucker hats fit more true and give you the flexibility for breath during the summer months. That’s where the story began: 1986. Hank made his first mark on the world in 1986. Kicking and screaming, this isn’t a tale from a galaxy far, far away. It’s one that has its roots in something more than fiction.
A dirty grill is not only unhealthy, but it also ruins the taste of any food you grill on it. The Grate Grill Scraper is pocket-sized and easily portable so you can take it anywhere. Weighing less than 2 oz, it won’t weigh you down. It was primarily created to eliminate the danger of swallowing a wire bristle from a standard BBQ cleaning brush.
They are available in Standard and Universal models, and in either Stainless Steel (for those very crusty grills) or Brass (for porcelain and Teflon-coated grills). We recommend the Universal Brass model for most travelers, as you never know when you might need to clean a grill for a surprise meal.

Inventor Christine recalls, “Often when I was really ‘in the point,’ I struggled to remember the score by the end of the rally. Now, with the touch of a finger, I can adjust Score At Hand to the correct score without interrupting the game. The top portion is used for the game score, and the bottom is used for the set score and tiebreaks. I can’t believe the confidence it has given me to always know the score.”

What happened to his stirring words: ‘The fighters are our salvation, but the bombers alone provide the means of victory’? Seventy years on, RAF 100 Group remains shrouded in mystery, their families unaware as veterans take their secrets to the grave. This book represents a tribute, a Memorial, proof of their existence, finally giving them recognition so richly deserved.
Arthur Stapleton founded Advance Electronics before retiring a wealthy man. ‘Reading his words was like seeing a blood-filled horror film play out in my mind. My eyes saw the scene evolve, my mind absorbing the vision of mangled corpses hanging on wire. Bodies unrecognisable as individuals, surrounded by severed limbs, half submerged in mud. Death without dignity. ‘It was not a story about a faceless soldier facing death on a daily basis – it was about my dad. I learned more about him after his death than when he was alive. I would like you to know him as well.’ These words are by Marion, the author’s daughter, adopted from within the family.
This autobiography is an absorbing read, both for those interested in WW1 and in what it takes to succeed in business.
The book emphasises Dr Lunn’s deep admiration for the bravery of the young National Servicemen in Cyprus when severely wounded and, also, how they coped with the loss of their comrades. He concludes the book by saying how much his life’s experience was enriched by his National Service and how it gave him a lasting affection for the British Army.
This book is based on his memories, supported by the information recorded in his log books, in the hope that it will give future generations a wider as well as deeper view of this era. In addition to recounting the minutiae of RAF life, ‘Pod’ recalls his career from National Serviceman to Flight Lieutenant, and the drama of flying the first jet fighters close to the border with East Germany. Part history, part memoir, I’ll Call You Pod will appeal to anyone with an interest in aircraft, the Cold War as seen from the air and on radar, and life in Her Majesty’s Royal Air Force in the mid-twentieth century.
Take a journey through the streets of London and discover things you never knew. A must for all who live and work in London, as well as visitors to our great city. What better way could there be than to have a drink and a walk around the parts of the city you have probably never visited. Hidden gems abound.
In his book, Geoff Wilson has corrected many of the errors and has explained many of the mysteries. This he has done by accessing many surprising sources of evidence, including, for example, the British Geological Survey, aerial photography and by following on foot several of Robin Hood’s journeys described in the ballads. Practical tests were also carried out. The author’s sons (both quite young at the time) were encouraged to shout at the top of their voices in one particular location to test if sounds do in fact echo in the valleys. They do.
Among the mysteries solved are the identities of Sir Richard at the Lee and the location of Verysdale and the Village of Lee. The ‘fayre castell’ described in the Gest is also identified, as is the chapel in Barnsdale dedicated to Mary Magdalene and described in stanza 440 of the Gest. One mystery which remains unresolved, however, is the identity of Robin himself. Perhaps he is, after all, just a yeoman named Robin Hood, although the claims of an alternative candidate are seriously considered.
To those interested in owning Siberian Huskies and racing sled dogs, his own individual accounts of his experiences are full of valuable tips.
Written with the same detail, intelligence and wit as his previous book, Burberry Days (also published by Austin Macauley), Brian Kitson’s Tales of a Grandfather is a fascinating portrait of a time, a family and a man.
Running through the book is a series of gripping historical narratives subtitled ‘Yesteryear’s Fires’, depicting the heroic professionalism of firefighters confronted by truly harrowing disasters. Some of these remain all-too-familiar, such as the King’s Cross fire of 1987 which claimed the lives of 31 people; others, no less terrible, have faded into distant memory. The book ends with a fresh and compelling description of a horrifying tragedy that no one can have forgotten: 2017’s Grenfell Tower fire. I Was a London Firefighter shares with David’s previous works – Beyond the Flames, London Firefighters and Fire-Floats and Fireboats – a careful and comprehensive approach to historical research, an eye for striking and unusual narrative details and an understated humour. Above all, it shows an unwavering appreciation of and empathy for the concerns and drives of the ordinary firefighter, born of David’s own experiences as a fireman.
Most of the occurrences were just everyday duties or chores that somehow went wrong or were the result of naivety of the crew, most of whom had never reached the age of 20 years and were thrown into doing things they had never contemplated before. So this book is really short yarns, mostly of amusing instances of life aboard a ship at war. These yarns are short, but the book as a whole is unique in as much as it is history as far as life was concerned on small RN ships in WWII, much of which few people have ever looked into or even heard about.
The author’s work dealt with intercepting messages from and locating German submarines by shortwave radio direction finding. This was specialised, little of which has ever been reported, although closely related to the work at Bletchley Park. Here it is dealt with extensively.
The latter took him from the elite world of thoroughbred horse racing and international equestrian sport to assisting underprivileged working equines and their owners in developing countries. Throughout his time with the FEI, Alex worked closely with the European Union and was actively involved with the conception of FEI relations with World Horse Welfare, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), and the International Federation of Racing Authorities.
In a series of anecdotes and tales of the band’s journey, we gain insight into the inner workings of a successful band; the fun and success, but also the work, the creativity, the pressures of seemingly endless tours, the good and the bad sides of the business, and the all too familiar trajectory of a band which sowed the seeds of music which endure 40 years later.
Sadly, at a time when he needed an experienced health care professional to help him fight his corner, what he got was a cold, uncaring man who clearly had no time for his situation. However, his initial assessment proved to be 100% accurate; at just 36 years of age, Simon was told he had Parkinson’s disease.
The desire to produce a written account of his life for his immediate family and friends led to A Life Worth Living. Ingram looks back at his life, often with humour and pathos, and decides that the way to keep going is to appreciate the life he has led. The only way to fight is to appreciate what battles he has already fought and won. After all, what else makes a life worth living? Ingram’s first-hand account of his life from his early childhood to teen years to his first signs of the debilitating disease give an insider’s look at not just a ‘disease’ but a man.
The former British champion was living the dream. People called him ‘The Look’. But behind the glory and the glitz, Lueshing’s innocence had already been butchered, his hope crippled and his soul shattered. For the first time, he has rediscovered the strength and courage of a champion to tell his harrowing story. The Belt Boy is a completely true account of a brutal life kept hidden. Shocking, explicit, traumatic, Kevin’s autobiography exposes a hideous crime and its utterly devastating legacy. He writes: I risk being judged, but I never want anyone to suffer what I went through. That is my motivation for writing this book.
Kevin’s account of childhood abuse is truly shocking and disturbing. Like a true champion, he has displayed incredible strength and bravery to reveal the horrific ordeal he suffered. His book needs to be read so we may all stay alert to this evil crime – NIGEL BENN
