UPDATE: The original book is out of print and difficult to source. Second hand copies occasionally become available from online sellers such as Abe Books, Amazon or Ebay but depending on condition may cost in excess of £100.
As the chapter covering the Royal Naval Hospital proved to be very popular, Dr Davies has now published this as a standalone soft covered book.
Copies are available for £12 from Cobholm Miniatures at 14 Broad Row, Great Yarmouth.
