Turning your book into a reality

The Shrapnel Kid – by Mereo Books

by Brian Eldridge

Brian Eldridge died in 2020, soon after completing this memoir of his early years. Collated and edited by his widow Joy, it vividly describes his childhood in the back streets of pre-war East End London, his apprenticeship in a dirty, disorganised and very Dickensian ship repair dockyard where health and safety was an unknown concept, and his rewarding National Service in the Royal Army Medical Corps.
