My Memoir, Probation and Me: Fallible Memories of a Fortunate Career, is FREE and available to download in the form of the adjacent Word document. Please note:

1) It is a hefty single document, 348 pages, but as a Word document it has a 'smart' second Contents page (page 2) so that the reader can navigate to any chapter or section that might be of particular interest. The version here now is the second edition, dated May 2021. It includes a specific section on 'Hostels' (covering more than what are now called Approved Premises) within Chapter 17.

2) Below I have reproduced the front page, so that the reader can have a preview to decide if there is any part of this memoir that might be of interest, and below that is the one-page Introduction to the first edition. NB To access the Memoir itself, click on the Docx W icon, not the previewed pages.

3) The Word document is locked for editing, but should be easy to open "Read-Only". If your device seems to demand a password from you to open it, please ignore this and instead look for a button or option which allows you to open it "Read-Only" - no password is required for this.

Please remember: To access the Memoir itself, click on the Docx W icon, not the previewed pages.
