Book : Take Me Back to Blighty

This time a book on the Salonika campaign and nothing but! I’m not sure how I missed this, which was first published by Tommies Guides in January 2017, but it’s just popped up on eBay which seems to be selling lots of new copies at various prices. If you can tell us more about it, please add a comment to this post.

Author: SCS Web Editor

Robin Braysher joined the SCS in 2003 and soon after became editor of the Society's journal - 'The New Mosquito' - a role he held until 2008. He then became the Society's web editor, a role he seems unable to shake off. His interest in the campaign comes from his grandfather, Fred, who served as a cyclist with the BSF from 1915 to 1917, mainly in the Struma valley. Opinions expressed in these posts are his and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Society.
