Dr Paul Davison

Service Child Out of Egypt & Into the NHS

Paul is often seen singing at the Candlelights & Darlington Clubs.

As a felloe 'Military Brat' I bought a copy of this ,(and he signed if for me, oddly legible writing for a Doctor!) and I am looking foward to settling down and readign his story.

"This is my first dip into the world of Facebook but I was persuaded that it was the way to go to help launch my new book. I hope to make a verbal announcement this Wednesday but here are the details. ‘Service Child, out of Egypt and into the NHS’ is a memoir written during the tedious days of Covid Lockdown and now polished up and distributed by Amazon Books. I attempt to define where I actually come from! It details my unusual life being born abroad and moving around every 2/3 years following my dad who was an RAF Chaplain. There were many UK and overseas postings with lots of adventures alongside the broken schooling and friendships. Eventually boarding school in Northern Ireland, Medical school in London followed by junior hospital jobs and finally General Practice. My work as a Police Surgeon adds some pithy experiences along with many case histories and anecdotes.

I hope to have a book launch event on Monday 22nd January in The Copper Beech, Neasham Rd Darlington from about 7 p.m. with some light refreshments, selected readings from the book and back ground live music. It would be great to see some of you during that evening. I will try and remember to bring in a few copies of the book to subsequent open mic evenings for sale and signing (£10.99 on Amazon Books and £10 cash to my Candlelite friends) I will now attempt to add my first Facebook pictures!

Cheers. Paul Davison."

Harvey Andrews

Gold Star to the Ozarks - A Musical Memoir.

I grew up listening to 'Friends of Mine' an album that has been replayed many times in my life and I never get tired of Harvey’s beautiful voice and the stories in the songs.

Reading this, I could imagine where some of his songs were inspired from.

My lovely friend Marie Little read this before me and loved it too.

Harvey is still singing and can be contacted on Facebook

Karen Williamson

Flower of Scotland - Roy Williamson. My Father

I lived in Forres and went to school there, and was alwasy enchanted by the wee museum to the Corries.

My parents had several Corries Albums, so, like harvewery Andrews, their music has followed me through life.

Karen was married to a freind of mine, and sadly, I attended her funeral. 

It was her copy that I first read, and eventaull, managed to get my own.
