    Book Signing at Walsall Library

    My Husband & I were lucky enough to go to a book signing at Walsall Library by Richard.

    He is certainly one of Banding's great chararcters! A great story-teller, with a wealth of
    interesting anecdotes. Well done Jen Beardsmore of Walsall Library for organising such
    an entertaining evening - not only a great talk by Richard but we were also treated to
    music by a Brass Ensemble from the Jackfield Band before the event.

    I have to agree, a very interesting book from one of bandings great men.

    I already have the Peter Roberts book, which is great. Has anybody read David Read's book? Is it any good?

    I found David Read's book very readable, and the passages about his time in the forces were interesting as, although he was there a little while before me, I recognised many of the places and situations.

    Though of course slightly biased (!), all 3 of the books are great reads, but I think that Richard's book comes across as the most intimately written, for me anyway. His writing style is very engaging. Peter Roberts' is also similar in style, with David's being more of a 'historical' book, but all 3 are great reads, and owning copies of each of them, I can highly recommend them!
