    I liked this book The book is a chatty slightly disjointed memoir set in chronological order It reads as if you're sitting at the kitchen table of your verbose great uncle listening to the stories of his life constantly interspersed with the parenthetical observations that reveal his political historical and cultural views and prejudices There is no connected theme running through the book but if you enjoy rambly personal memoirs you may enjoy it

    I highly recommend the book to anyone interested in biography; life in Scotland during the Great Depression World War II and the post war years; a teenager’s life in the Salvation Army in the late ’40s; music making especially Scottish folk music brass band music and tunes of the ’40s ’50s and ’60s; life of a common airman in the RAF of the early ’50s; British military life in Egypt during the pre Suez crisis days; emigration from Scotland and immigration to Canada in the mid ’60s The writing style is folksy humorous and honest Ian tells it like it was
