  • Something for Nothing, Your Joking!

    Hi all,
    My name is Dave Wilson I am a retired station officer from the London (UK) fire brigade. The first volume of my autobiography titled To Ride a Red Engine(which is currently out of print) is now available as an E-book, (free download). The book which was previously on sale in the USA was described as the best first person read ever!. It has a lot of humour in it, but you Yanks may need to learn a new (old?) language called Her Majesties Queens English to get on with it. If you fancy a read click onto

    Dave,
    Just purused the first chapter of your book. Excellent! When I was on embassy duty in London, I had the pleasure to meet and tip a few with a couple of London FF's. What a crew!
    Best of luck on the e-book distribution.

    Jim RN-C, FF/EMT


    By the way, I also downloaded the book!!!

      I down loaded this about a week ago. Great reading and very funny, once you figure out the jargon of those folks from across the pond. Well worth a look!

        Hi all Dave W back

        If anyone reading the book cares to make a note words etc not understood, and E-mail me I could create a glossary and post it.

        IE in the UK the word ****ed has a double meaning. ****ed off means the same as US. ****ed, or ****ed as rat etc, means under the fluence of alkyhol, athough I suppose it is possible to be both, at one and the same time. Two great nations divided by a common language.
