'A touching and funny tribute to Arthur Smith's own father. Beautiful' ***** (Young-Perspective.net)
Syd Smith fought at El Alamein, became a POW and ended the war in the notorious Colditz Castle in Germany. In the 1950s, PC Syd patrolled London's South Bank and met a gallery of characters whom he tried his best not to arrest.
Arthur tells this 20th-century story with laughter, music reflections and a hilarious photo.
'Rather lovely' (Times)
