Hello All

Old lurker on the site here. People might be interested in the London Large books I'm knocking out with my brother Roy. They feature the adventures of Harry 'H' Hawkins, a no-nonsense, old school Bermondsey copper trying to come to terms with London and the world as they now are. We don't make a big thing of it, but H is a Millwall man with Millwall values - Millwall people will get the references.

The books have been well reviewed, especially by SE Londoners, and we're starting to build a good following. New book (2nd in the trilogy) is out at the end of the month.

Details for anyone interested at


PS. Years ago I wrote a sociology book about Millwall called 'No One Likes Us' - this new one's more readable!

Another interesting read are any of the books by Harry Bowling the majority of which are set in and around Bermondsey both pre and post WW2.
