Brit Brats - may be of interest
« on: May 25, 2012, 09:04:19 AM »
Hi All, I got the email below from Clare Gibson.

I thought that it may be of interest.

Hello

I thought that you might like to know of the recent publication, by Shire Books, of Army Childhood: British Army Children's Lives and Times. I'm attaching further details below in case the book is of interest.

Best wishes

Clare

Army Childhood: British Army Children’s Lives and Times
Were you once an army brat, barrack rat or pads brat? Are you the parent or relation of an army child? Do you work with army children? Are you researching an army family in your family tree? If your answer to any of these questions is ‘Yes!’, then you may be interested in Army Childhood: British Army Children’s Lives and Times, a newly published illustrated book by Clare Gibson, founder of The Army Children Archive (TACA).

Dedicated to all British army children, past and present, the book starts and finishes by considering the nature and legacy of the army childhood experienced by countless children of serving soldiers since the establishment of the British Army over three hundred years ago. Its six information-rich, picture-packed chapters focus on the changing treatment of army children by the military authorities over the centuries; where they have lived the world over, and how they have been transported to and fro; how they have been accommodated; what living ‘within the wire’ is like; how and where army children have been educated; and how they have been entertained when at leisure.

Enlightening and insightful, Army Childhood is essential reading for anyone with an army-child connection.

Army Childhood: British Army Children’s Lives and Times, a 56-page paperback by Clare Gibson, was published in May 2012 as part of the Shire Library by Shire Publications Ltd. Click on the link for further details and to order it directly from Shire (price: £6.99 for those in the UK and countries other than the USA and Canada; $12.95 for those in the USA; and $14.95 for those in Canada): http://www.shirebooks.co.uk/store/Army-Childhood_9780747810995

Hi Fred,

Do you want me to send an email to singaporeschools, or put it on the facebook page? If so please send me an email and I'll do it.
Hope you are well, will you make the reunion in October at Hatfield?

Regards,
Lynne

Hi Lynne,

Sounds good, I'll leave it to you - as you can see, I don't get on here often, normally just to get rid of spammers!

How's the reunion going? Do you need a note on the site?

Fred  ;)
