The Memoirs of an Uncommon Man - Roland Leman Drinkwater

Hi Everyone,
If anyone remembers my fathers Memoirs from several years ago, around 2004 I posted a link to my old site (dichromia) on which I'd posted my father's memoirs and several people commented on them- I no longer have the Dichromia site and the memoirs are currently not on the Internet- However, I'd like to make them available for anyone to read, so if anyone would like to read them, you can PM me your e-mail address and I can send you a copy in pdf format (1.9Mb).
Born in 1915, and told in his own words, his memoirs are a story of his life and tell of much of old Accrington and the customs and characters of the town.
Best wishes,
Roland Drinkwater
