Diary of a Royal Marine (£12 – with 100% of the profits to Royal Navy Royal Marines Charity)
In the winter of 2016 author Richard M Jones had exclusive access to the personal collection of a Mr George Cutcher, a former Royal Marine who had fought in the First World War and had gone on to live a full and active life. Now for the first time his story is told with his entire diary published along with the story of his life. How he joined the Marines too young, how he trained future Kings in the gymnasium, going on to fight in both Gallipoli and the Somme before being medically discharged. His own accounts of the fighting in the trenches brings it home to the reader just how bad conditions were and his collection makes his entire story so very real.
