Descripción

Dust jacket complete, unclipped. Green cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. Colour frontis plate. Illustrations / plates. 156 pages clean and tight. The story of the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes is one of perseverance, courage and human endeavour - a story that will be read with gratitude by those who served in some of the toughest campaigns of this century, and who affectionately nick-named it `Naafi'. No matter how difficult or dangerous the circumstances, Naafi was there to provide men and women in the armed forces all over the world with refreshment and entertainment. Today, Naafi continues to meet the needs of servicemen and their families by providing an ever increasing variety of goods and amenities. Wherever the forces are stationed, Naafi has modern clubs, supermarkets and shops, and almost anything can be obtained through Naafi. Service to the Services is the first fully authorised and up to date history of Naafi. The author has researched his subject with meticulous care, and has given an accurate and fascinating account of this remarkable organisation. Beginning with a vivid description of the harsh life led by fighting men in pre-Naafi days, he goes on to tell how by 1918 a unified canteen system was evolving and conditions improving. This provided the basis for Naafi, and in 1921 Naafi came into being. Nor does the author neglect to stress the vital part played throughout Naafi's history by its staff. In wartime they face the same hazards as those they serve, and their many acts of bravery and their devotion to duty have added greatly to Naafi's distinguished record. In peacetime they maintain the same high standards of service and dedication. As a result, Naafi has for many years enjoyed Royal patronage in recognition of the consistently good service to the Services. This is a book to interest and delight not only those familiar with Naafi, but also those who wish to know more about Naafi's crucial role in our military history. Furthermore, the author's lively style and lucid approach will attract many readers to the unique story of Naafi. Size: 8vo. N° de ref. de la librería 140055
