Prunes For Breakfast by John Searancke 

page 59 prunes

This is the story of John’s parents, told mostly from the side of his father, from the time of his calling up in early 1940 to his release from a prisoner of war camp in Germany in 1945.

After the deaths of his parents, John’s aunt gave him a box of letters which had been written by his father to his mother over the period from 1940 to 1945. These letters take us through five captivating years, telling of the ups and downs, the plots and counterplots as his father  rose through the ranks to end his war as a captain.

John recreates the five years of war and hardship that the letters span.
