A Scottish Baptist, the Revd Neil Allison, who is also a serving chaplain, is writing the history of the United Board. Vol 1 has been published as 'The clash of empires 1914 - 1030' ISBN 9780955484506 There is also a Sheffield PhD by John Thompson that studied all Free Church Chaplains 1830 - 1930. Neil is a fund of information on all Baptist chaplains. He could be contacted through David Blake.

I am interested in the Dunkirk experience. Have you come across 'On My Heart Too' by Clifford Lever? he was a Methodist Chaplain evacuated through Calais. His book was published in 1943. The middle part of 'Atonement' bears some marks of similarity and I wondered if it was part of the inspiration.

My interest is in all military chaplaincy. If there is a slight bias towards WW1 it is because I have been doing some work on chaplains in that period. My latest purchase ls 'Leaves from a Chaplain's Journal, With the Cameronians in France' by John White and published in 1917.

All these books are catalogued in my library.

Good wishes

Hope move goes well. Fifty thousand miles... is an interesting work, not least because of his take on ecumenism.
Interested to note thatwe share a number of books on army chaplaincy.
