Published by Logaston Press, 100 pages. Paperback (N5918)

From the rear side cover: This is the story of both the buildings that formed Norton Barracks and of the soldiers and other personnel who were based there as members of staff or who passed through as they underwent training. Stan Jobson has spent much time in the Regimental Archives unearthing both photographs and personal recollections of time spent at the barracks. The result is a tale of British Military history in microcosm, but often seen from a personal viewpoint of hard training, military structures, playful pranks, sporting achievements, patriotic surges, post D-Day traumas and both keen and reluctant National Servicemen. There is also an appendix which gives the background to the names of the streets which now criss-cross much of the site of the barracks, names which are largely associated with the battle honours of the Worcestershire Regiment.

The condition of the book is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and inatct, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
