Books on the history of WW1Military and Naval History

As well as books on matters pre-WW1 the first two categories of Military History and Naval History include books spanning periods that are not limited to major conficts, for instance ' the history of the submarine'.

Other catalogue names are self-explanatory.

We occasionally buy a single subject collection which may warrant its own subsidiary catalogue. Such a collection is also likely to be listed in 'Featured Stock'.

The ABfaR Blog

A recent contribution on the ABfaR blog is an update for the 75th anniversary in February this year of the raid which led to the installation of an 'immediate danger' air raid warning in 1942, a warning which sounded like the call of a cuckoo. Prior to that was a brief piece about Georgette Heyer's An Infamous Army with illustrations of the maps from the 1st edition for those reading later editions without them.

 

 

Lowestoft Ephemera

I maintain another site called Old Lowestoft. It is a collection point for various ephemeral items of local historical interest. Buried within that site is Letters from Lowestoft, a collection of letters of local Lowestoft war news written during WW2.

For information about the 1916 German bombardment of Lowestoft during WW1 you can find the full text of my family's account of the bombardment on the 'Old Lowestoft' site.

Latest stock additions


Sad to say I haven't added any new stock since November 2014 when my oldest relative went into hospital. It was found when he was ready to be discharged that he was no longer capable of looking after himself and he has gone into residential care.

This has necessitated the disposal of his home but before that can be achieved the contents have to be sorted and carefully examined, especialIy as there are several paper securities that have not been traced.

I have managed to add a couple of posts to my blog but little else. I have continued buying interesting stock when it has been offered including a couple of Georgette Heyer collections and I hope to find the time to catalogue it later this year.

In the meantime please watch this space!
