What is this book about?
I am so glad you asked me that.
It is about a band of six Boy Scouts who, during World War 2, collected silver paper from cigarette packets and chocolate wrappers to be recycled into Spitfires and Hurricanes which, smelling faintly of Cadbury’s and Virginia leaf, swept the German Luftwaffe from British skies and eventually caused Adolf Hitler to commit suicide.
Read about the hardships the patrol had to endure. How when they went around from house-to-house on “Bob-a-Job Day”, villagers would hide or paint white crosses on their doors.
Despite it all the Yellow Six – aka the Peewit Patrol of the First Streetly Boy Scouts – adhered heroically to the Boy Scout’s code of conduct which entailed smiling and whistling “under all difficulties” – they smiled and whistled even when trying to help a man who was buried under some collapsed scaffolding and who was doing his best to shut them up and drive them off.
Read how they helped old ladies across roads even though some struggled violently, and on to buses going the wrong way; how they helped drag furniture from a house they thought was on fire...
And, if the reader can stomach it, read how they gained their proficiency badges for cooking and how long some of them managed to hold down their self-cooked meals.
It is a stirring yarn hitherto untold – and largely autobiographical.
