AN unsung hero of the First World War from Redditch is featured in a new book by naval historian Steve Dunn.

Steve, who has already written five books about the Royal Navy in the war, chose to focus his sixth on the personal stories of little-known sailors such as Redditch’s Raymond Victor John Jeffs, who ‘did his bit’ for the war effort aboard HMS Cullist.

Bayly’s War focuses on the Royal Navy’s Coast of Ireland Command, and the role its men played in the Allied victory.

The book is available to buy on Amazon.
