Another way to help the Crescent and get a good read !

Hi all,

Have just been informed of another way you can help raise money for the Crescent and save money yourself if you want a copy of James Wharton’s book “Out in The Army”

If you visit https://www.bitebackpublishing.com/promotions and enter promo code THE CRESCENT you will receive the book at a discounted rate and a percentage of the sale will go to The Crescent as a donation.

For those ordering before release on the 24th you will receive a signed copy too.

Here is the publisher’s outline of the book;

“Seeking escape from the quiet countryside of North Wales, the young James Wharton joined the British Army with adventure on his mind – and he found it. At basic training, boozing and brawling accompany the daily trials of army life but all the while James faces a battle of his own: he is gay and finding the courage to tell not only his family and friends but his fellow soldiers will be the biggest challenge of all.

Written with searing honesty, James charts his incredible journey from punch bag to poster boy, along the way describing the troubles and trials of coming to terms with his sexuality. Late nights in the clubs of Soho to early mornings guarding the Queen; rocket attacks in the deserts of Iraq to tank rides with Prince Harry on the plains of Canada – this is James’s life out in the army.”

Promises to be an exciting read so get your copy now and help the Crescent at the same time!

Thanks for your support as ever,

The Crescent Team
