Ships at War (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: The books by Allan A. Murray are noted for their detailed research and historical accuracy. Strong narratives move the reader through military history events that are less well known or not previously written about with multiple layers cleverly integrated to reveal the overall context, the major events and the role of key protagonists. Elements of the rich military heritage of Allan's family have been selectively woven into many of the stories to add depth and emotion.

This book is a detailed description of the sinking of the SS Iron Chieftain by the famous Japanese submarine I-24 on 3 June 1942. SS Iron Chieftain was the first merchant vessel sunk off the south-east coast of Australia by submarines in World War II; twelve merchant seamen lost their lives. Thirty-seven survived, including twenty-five who spent more than a day rowing to shore in a lifeboat. This book is a tale of loss, luck, endurance and leadership and is indicative of the experience of many who served in Australia’s Merchant Navy in World War II. The book draws upon many first hand accounts.

Hessle Road Scallywags (3 Book Series)
From Book 1:
Hessle Road Scallywags is now an official UK best seller.

Ian Newton was born Ian Achmed in a post war partially bombed out slum for the ghettoized poor called Wassand Street off Hessle Road, Hull in the United Kingdom in 1955. It was they heyday of the fishing industry in Hull and Hessle Road buzzed with activity from one end to the other. Except for the usual suspects, almost everybody had a job. And with the endless stream of trawlers landing daily, every night was Saturday night, as the old road became a playground for the hordes of fishermen flushed with money, for three days at least, until it was back to sea.

But the following decade produced a time of transition for Hessle Road and its community. The steady demise of the fishing industry saw trawlers left in the docks and fisherman join the dole queues. And what Hitler had failed to demolish with his bombers was completed by the demolition man, as street after street was torn down and many "Hessle Roaders" gradually and reluctantly moved out to the new council estates on the outskirts of the city.

Ian and three of his best pals, Terry Cox, Frankie Callis and Jimmy (Isse) Turner, grew up during these years of change. Their early lives, though fraught with poverty and hardship, were happy days filled with fun, excitement, mischief and not least a lot of dodgy deals as they tried to make a bob or two out of any trick that they could pull, be it legal or otherwise...

Part of the Family (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: In 1938 and 1939, via a movement known as the Kindertransport, thousands of Jewish children were taken from Nazi-occupied territories to safety in Great Britain. They came to a new family, a new country, and a new life. Approximately 250 of these children were sponsored by Christadelphians, a small Christian group.

Often the Holocaust is considered in terms of statistics: how many perished and how many were affected, so much so that at times the individual stories are lost in the numbers. This series examines the experiences of the individuals who came to England as children, and lived with Christadelphians.

Ten of these child survivors, and their families, participated in the effort to bring about this first volume.

These are their stories.

Book with Wings (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: "We are not great; we only carry the message of God. This is a philosophy of man and a philosophy of God." (Spoken by Aka, spiritual messengers of God, June 9, 1970)

"Remember, we are here to prepare a way for the Messiah." (Aka, August 24, 1970)

"But we say unto you, there are many roads that should lead unto our Father’s many mansions. Criticize no one else for choosing a different path. Bring forth the philosophy of thought unto this one. Share your thoughts, and the blessings thy seek shall come forth." (April 10, 1974)

"Upon your earth many religions have come and gone. The true philosophy of the Lord has remained. Yet man should take from and add to, to fit his own needs. But we say unto you, our Father has many mansions. Our Father gave forth unto you the Ten Commandments. He asked but two things. Give back unto the Lord one tenth of the love the Lord has given unto you; give forth one tenth of that love unto your fellow man. And the fulfillment of all shall come in complete." (Aka, September 10, 1974)

"Remember, with faith thy can now walk on the water, for the water is the spiritual philosophy of your God." [See Acts 1:12-26, 2:1-39.] (Aka, August 13, 1971)

"You will say unto us, you have talked once again as in riddles. But we say unto you -- for those who should hear, let them hear. For those who should see, let them see.
But we say unto you, we have come that nothing should be hidden. We have come forth to bring the light unto the Lord’s people, all of the people.

"Each man has chosen his way unto worship God. We are here not to destroy this, but to give unto you the philosophy, and in doing so, the preparation within yourselves.
For some shall hear our words. And others shall misinterpret our words. And so is the ways of men. But we say unto you, for those who should misinterpret, we are here to prepare the way. Are you? Can you prepare the way within yourself?

"For no one but our Father knows the exact day or moment. Therefore, we say unto you, be prepared at any moment that that he who should come should walk up unto you and you should extend your hand with love and knowledge and know of him." (Aka, June 7, 1974)

In this book is collected the philosophy which the spiritual messengers of God, Aka, spoke through their instrument, A. Ray Elkins, from 1970 to 1989. Read this universal philosophy, just as it was spoken.

Universal Philosophy is available in Kindle (as one ebook). But it is printed in paperback (as two books, the 1970-1976 philosophy and the 1977 -1989 philosophy).

The Anglo-Zulu War (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: It is December 1878, and war looms on the horizon in South Africa. British High Commissioner Sir Henry Bartle-Frere seeks to dismantle the powerful neighbouring kingdom of the Zulus and uses an incursion along the disputed border as his justification for war. He issues an impossible ultimatum to the Zulu king, Cetshwayo, demanding he disband his armies and pay massive reparations. With a heavy heart, the king prepares his nation for war against their former allies.

Leading the invasion is Lieutenant General Sir Frederic Thesiger, Baron Chelmsford, a highly experienced officer fresh off a decisive triumph over the neighbouring Xhosa tribes. He and Frere are convinced that a quick victory over the Zulus will negate any repercussions from the home government for launching what is, in essence, an illegal war.

Recently arrived to South Africa are newly-recruited Privates Arthur Wilkinson and Richard Lowe; members of C Company, 1/24th Regiment of Foot under the venerable Captain Reginald Younghusband. Eager for adventure, they are prepared to do their duty both for the Empire and for their friends. As Frere’s ultimatum expires, the army of British redcoats and allied African auxiliaries crosses the uMzinyathi River at Rorke’s Drift into Zululand. Ten days later, the British and Zulus will meet their destiny at the base of a mountain called Isandlwana.

Norfolk Gravestone Inscriptions (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: This is the first in a new series of books giving lists of transcribed gravestone inscriptions for the county of Norfolk. This particular book is called Norfolk Gravestones Vol 1 and covers the following churches :- Carbrooke, Caston, Griston, Hockham, Morley, Necton, Ovington, Shipdham, South Pickenham and Watton.

There are over 490 inscriptions inside this edition, you'll also be able to acquire a digital/photographic copy of the actual gravestone should you need one for your own records by contacting me via the details given in my book. These inscriptions were transcribed in the hope that it will at least archive many of these epitaphs for others to see in years to come. These wonderful old monuments are deteriorating at an alarming rate, at least I have recorded some of them for posterity, especially for families who are trying to research their own history here in Norfolk.

The list consists mainly of inscriptions that are pre-1900's. Basically they are ones that are beginning fade with weathering, also some of those that had leaded lettering which is falling apart. As you can imagine, the work of transcribing these old epitaphs has taken me many, many hours. I have travelled lots of miles and I've lost loads of sleep in order to record and preserve what's left of these wonderful pieces of social history. I do hope that if you're researching your ancestors, you'll perhaps find some of your own families here in this book.

There are also other books in this series here on Amazon and hopefully there will be more to come as and when I'm able to record them.

An Unusual Journey Through Royal History (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: This is not your typical royal history book. The table of contents reads more like a menu at a good restaurant, where there’s something for everyone’s taste. Each of the 18 chapters tells a unique story about an overlooked or unusual aspect of royal history, spanning centuries and countries, but in no particular order. From first to last, they will take you on a journey through royal history you’ve probably never seen or thought of before.

In few – if any – other books will you find the British Monarchy compared to London’s sewer system, or read of the challenges of finding a suitable husband for a 200-plus pound Victorian princess who was nonetheless a “remarkably light dancer.” Rarely are the lives of historic and modern royals from Queen Victoria and Catherine the Great to Prince Charles and Crown Prince Frederick of Denmark “illustrated” not by paintings but by tattoos. Even more intimate topics, like the practice of circumcision among royals – including Princes William and Harry – are explored for the sake of inquiring minds.

Chances are, even readers who usually find historic royalty boring and stuffy or modern royalty anachronistic and detached will find something to enjoy. Who wouldn’t feel a bit satisfied reading about a celebrated 19th century courtesan being paid to steal the thunder of an old and frumpy queen just to prove that queens are expected to be beautiful? It can also be quite amusing to find that a supposedly formal portrait of the current British Royal Family holds hidden, enigmatic clues to family dynamics and individual personalities that amuse and baffle.

In short (much like the Court dwarfs you’ll read about), this book will leave you with a sense that you not only know royal history – and enjoy it – but that you have also journeyed through it and know the royals personally, from who exterminates their palaces right down to their infamous last words.

"I enjoyed these essays on royalty, which range widely from the beauty of Queens to court dwarfs and royal circumcision. Readers will find an impressively wide span of history enjoyably investigated." – Hugo Vickers
Hugo Vickers, author of “Behind Closed Doors: The Tragic, Untold Story of The Duchess of Windsor,” is a writer and broadcaster who has written biographies of many twentieth century figures.
