The Smell of Diesel Book Description:

The story of my working life as a lorry driver from the 1960`s onwards. The book includes the early work after leaving school in 1961 up to the age of 21 when I worked as a dock shunter on the very busy Preston docks. Moving on from the docks the story tells of life as a long distance lorry driver. The companies and the lorries I drove at these large haulage and shipping contractors are all detailed with emphasis on the loading and unloading when things were a bit harder than nowadays. The many friends I made at work are mentioned along with some amusing and sad accounts. My personal life is briefly mentioned in the story along with the few injuries picked up along the way.
