Life is just ….

Andy Benford, a retired submariner writes:

As a proud submariner it’s important to me that the crews of Royal Navy submarines lost in war or in peacetime are never forgotten and that there is a fitting memorial at the National Arboretum Memorial where visitors can reflect and remember such bravery and sacrifice.

I wondered what I could do to help to encourage donations to The Submariner Memorial Appeal and I decided to try to play to my strengths – I am not a runner!  


“Life is just …” is the result: a novella to both entertain and to inform by encapsulating some of my experiences in a Royal Navy diesel submarine in the 1970s.
