Susan considers with poignancy and compassion how events including a war in South Africa, a riot in Llanelli, a general strike, and two world wars, affected the lives and fortunes of those concerned. The story spans the reigns of nine kings and queens as one person from each generation makes that diagonal journey that will determine whether he or she will live as a Welsh person or a North Easterner.

  • Divers is the true story of Jon May, a dive medic, whose journey started with the Piper Alpha disaster, and took him from the North Sea to the Kuwait War, to Bombay, the South China Sea and Vietnam. It is a story shot through with the drama, gallows humour and suspense of one of the world’s most dangerous professions, carried out by an individual breed of men in some of Earth’s toughest corners. Jon was called upon to help rescue a skipper trapped below deck on a sinking ship, treat a latterday victim of mustard gas and encountered boat people who could have been mistaken for pirates. He learned never to expect any gratitude from a Bombay beggar and, in this book, tells of encounters with angry sea snakes as well as a phantom oilrig. It may sound like the stuff of fiction, but for knife-edged excitement, nothing beats the truth. Paperback, 208 pages, RRP £9.99 ISBN 978-1-908299-78-9 Published by Sixth Element Publishing, September 2015
