“Epitaph for Nickle Eck” – Childhood Mischief in Birmingham

Nickle Eck

After quite a struggle with the publishers Lutina Yates has managed to get Eric’s memoir published to her satisfaction. Eric lived in the village for quite some time until his death a couple of years ago, and will be remembered by many of us. His book gives an account of the things he and his brother got up to in the war, and has beautiful illustrations by John Ashton. If anyone is looking for an entertaining holiday read, Dinah now has copies in the shop for sale.
