Les Pringle Book and Novel

Les Pringle - Author

Les Pringle is the author of the much-loved first memoir of his ambulance-driver days, Blue Lights and Long Nights. He joined Birmingham's Metropolitan Ambulance Service in the seventies for little more reason than it seemed a good idea at the time. That good idea led to three, unbroken decades of round the clock emergency work. He is the holder of the Queen's Medal for Long and Exemplary Service. He has two children and still lives in Birmingham with his wife, Marie-Madeleine.
