  • 12 Months To Win
    John and Percy Westerman both wrote numerous 'Boy's Own' Adventures-style stories that leave the mighty Biggles standing!   All our Westerman books are in remarkably good condition, considering they are of the golden day and age when books were handed down through and around families.
  • twice brightly
    By that infamous hilarious member of the Goons, Harry Secombe. Larry Gower left the Army with one ambition: to be a comedian.  His pal Wally got him started in a tough Northern variety theatre, and after that, life was a hectic round of landladies and lodgers, amorous artistes and awkward audiences. But it was the life that Larry wanted - seedy clubs, spotlights and all.

  • what Cheer
    Merry stories for all occasions - some even a little bit saucy for 1929 and some not very P.C. for today's standards!  Most are good fast snappies, such as the young lady who announced that when she married, it would be to a man who was polished, upright and grand.  The rejected suitor replied, "You don't want a man - you want a piano!"   As you see, they are mostly nice clean ones that reflect the humour of the 1920s - making this a social time travel trip.
