A touching and heart-warming memoir of an ambulance driver in ‘70s Britain, his first Blue Lights and Long Nights was also a terrific read and like this a fascinating insight into the ‘70s. Coping with cases ranging from the absurd to the heart rending, from attending murder scenes to delivering babies it’s quite a life for Les, and one that he and his shift mates tread with warmth and humour in equal measure.
Call the Ambulance! by Les Pringle
Exploding pressure cookers, a thwarted wife's deadly revenge and transvestites in distress - manning an ambulance in the seventies kept you on your toes. Having survived the rites of passage as a probationer, Les Pringle now has to face up to the reality of life as an ambulance man in Thatcher's Britain. He does this with humour and fortitude - two qualities which are essential if he is to cope with cases ranging from the absurd to the heart rending. From attending murder scenes to delivering babies ...it's quite a life for Les, and one that he and his shift mates tread with warmth and humour in equal measure.
