signed by the author on the title page: "With all Good Wishes! Helen Long"; In 1939 Helen Long was a "deb" and beautiful: but the war made allowances for no-one. In this entertaining autobiography she describes her sheltered childhood, her life as a V.A.D. nurse during the War and a B.E.A. air-hostess immediately after. With a light touch she introduces her training days under the supervision of "Madam", her experiences as one of a small detachment of women aboard the troopship, Highland Monarch, Shepheards Hotel in Cairo and of course her exacting work in a Service Hospital. Her vivid descriptions, the humour and the pathos combined with her letters, lovingly retained, and other memorabilia, make this a book of touching nostalgia to be enjoyed by the young as well as those who served at home or abroad in the World War.
