In July 2009, I published a book entitled ‘The Chorley Pals’, with the late John Garwood.
He was the authority on the Chorley Pals and the book covers the history of the men from the town and surrounding villages who served in the unit. They were ‘Y’ Company of the 11th (Service) Battalion (Accrington) East Lancashire Regiment – one quarter of the famous ‘Accrington Pals’.
The book is priced at £10.00 + £4.00 p&p.
My book ‘Brindle & Hoghton Pals’ records the men from two Lancashire villages who fought and died in World War One.
It has 140 x A4 pages and over 300 photographs, plus details of men on war memorials in Brindle, Hoghton, Withnell Fold and Higher Walton. It is available at £10.00 + £4.00 p&p.
I am currently working g on a new book entitled ‘Rovers in Uniform’, about players from Blackburn Rovers F.C. who served in World War One, the Second World War and in uniform doing National Service. I hope to get it published late summer 2024.
