Noel Cashford served for six years in the Royal Navy’s Mine and Bomb Disposal Squad. During this time he made safe over 200 devices, 57 in a mere three days.Noel didn’t intend to be a daring hero as poor eyesight had prevented him from joining the surface fleet. When the opportunity arose to do something more exciting than administration, he naturally went for it, little realising that he would end up defusing bombs and mines!This book is a collection of his memories of those days. It is a touching and humorous account of his dangerous job where, in the early days of the war, you could be lucky to last more than just a few months.
