Kinmel Revisited by Robert James Bridge
Today one could perhaps be forgiven for not noticing the small village of Bodelwyddan situated on the North Wales coast, but back in the year 1919, just after the war to end all wars, some four-hundred men of the Canadian expeditionary force stationed in the camp adjacent to the village, in 1919 the camp, and indeed Bodelwyddan, were on the front page of almost every tabloid in the country.
In 1990, author Robert (Bob) Bridge and his wife, Lilian, decided to retire from their jobs and move closer to their aged parents in Abergele, another village not far from Bodelwyddan. They purchased an old Victorian house and renovated it to more modern standards. As they proceeded, they encountered an old box in the corner. As they brushed away the dust, they saw the insignia of a Regiment that they were not familiar with. Inside that box were old manuscripts that were damp and almost unreadable, however they were able to make out the words, Kinmel Revisited.
The fascinating story told herein began to unfold of an army officer and his wife who had lodged at Abergele in 1919 during the riot at camp. You will find yourself in scenes of a long-forgotten era where men screamed in pain and to the horrors that Captain George Sawley had witnessed.

About The Author: Author Robert James Bridge began writing many years ago mainly because he has an imagination that tends to take him into a sort of dreamworld. At 82 years old, he still writes to this day, simply because he loves what he does; even if it pays very little. Bridge lives with his long-suffering wife, who has recently been given the all clear from cancer. He indicates she is long-suffering, because she has helped him to continue to write and given him the inspiration to carry on writing. Bridge and his wife, Mildred, live on the South Coast of the United Kingdom, five minutes from the seaside.
From The Author: Hi and welcome to my biography. May I offer readers of fictional crime and Canadian Historical Fiction a reading discovery within my world of books?
FICTIONAL CRIME: This is a three books series of crime I fondly call THE HELL-BENT SERIES, since it entails Murder, Revenge, and Corruption featuring our intrepid ex met cop Jim Bent as he retires from the met and becomes a private eye. A private eye on the streets he knows so well in London England. Jim is taken on a rollercoaster of crime that not only involves murder most foul, but a sexual journey of discovery along the way! If you like fictional crime with a twist then why not read the complete series.
Settle back and enjoy Jim Bents introduction to the world of crime!
Thanks to www.the cover collection.com and Debbie for the cover of number four in my fictional crime series is ‘HELL BENT ON BLACKMAIL’.
CANADIAN HISTORICAL FICTION: I call this Canadian Fiction since it involves Canadian soldiers in the year 1919, and a riot at Kinmel Army Camp in which five young men actually died. This is called “KINMEL REVISITED” and to use a pun this is an explosive story using fictional characters. A BOLT FROM THE BLUE-THE HALIFAX EXPLOSION is my recent addition and this is the story of how a young boy loses all of his family on that fateful day of December 6th 1917, but goes on to become a national hero of his time.
Many thanks to all of those who read and enjoyed my books, and may I add I am in the throes of writing a fourth in my crime series with more action from Jim Bent. Robert James Bridge-UK Author
