Les Hunt's book is now on sale.
Born in October 1932 Les Hunt lived in North London, apart from the times he was evacuated during World War II. He joined the Scouting Movement and achieved the honour of King Scout. The mojority of his working years were with Wimpey Construction where he progressed and attained the position of Marketing Manager with Wimpey Waste. His great hobby was photography. Since retirement Les became interested in RAF Upwood where he served and became a staunch follower of the Web site produced by Sean Edwards, this prompted Les to write his National Service Memoirs for the Web site. Sadly, Les passed away on the 28th of August 2006 and in memory of Les his family, with Sean's help and guidance, decided to publish his memoirs in book form with all proceeds donated to the RAF Benevolent Fund.
The book is priced at £4.99
