From the conversations (moot) and the course with Mors I would like to make a start on flora, locally first and then wider afield, its something I havent paid much attention to in the past, something I wish to rectify now, I would appreciate a starter list, I have a few already, collins trees, food for free, wild food. Specifically more on plants and trees, and there uses, Wayne ? mentioned a book, collins I think on herbs, and their uses, thats the kinda thing I'm after, any help gratefully received.

Stuart,

Very pleased to see you had the Cody Lundin book (98.6 Degrees the art of keeping your *** alive) as one of your recommended reads. I don't think this book gets the praise it deserves - it is an original and interesting approach to survival, based on the premise (and I'm paraphrasing here) that all survival skills are working towards maintaining your body core temperature.

I am also gladdened to see Tom Brown in your list of authors that you avoid. Whilst I respect the fact that he is a guru to many, I dislike both his style and teaching methods and believe him to be vastly over-rated.

One book which I haven't seen in many collections (if any) is a small sub-A5 sized bookelt that was issued to my grandad, who was a Royal Signals Dispatch Motorcycle Rider in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) in World War II. It is designed to inform soldiers/sailors/airmen about basic survival skills in the Ceylonian and Indian jungle areas. It does so through the (mis)adventures of Pilot Officer Prune, an acccident-prone airman who appears to end up in many a poor situation. Whilst there are some inaccuracies, it is generally correct in its assertions. I'll dig it out and get the book name, reference number and possibly a scan of the cover.

Do any avid collectors know if similar booklets were issued to UK forces elsewhere in the world in different environments?

Wow - I've just realised that this was my 1000th post! I wonder if I ever posted anything useful...?

Here we go - that military book is called 'The Jungle Hiker - A Royal Air Force Welfare Publication, Ceylon, 1944', 4th Edition. At a cost of 1 Rupee and 50 cents!

It has my grandfather's name and the address: The 1st Operating Bastion (sp? - it's definitely not Batalion), Southern Signals, India Command.

It's a remarkable little book with b&w and colour line drawings of flora and fauna of Ceylon, along with survival information (like making shelters out of parachutes) and a phrase book at the end.

Unfortunately, it is starting to disintegrate with age.

It appears you can still get it - copies are around for between £8 and £12 if you google the book title. Picture of cover is at link:

West Devon, Edge of Dartymoor!
I think it was called 'The Survival Handbook', which is why I cannot decide which one I want.

The difference in this book, is it does not talk about Survival kits but a possibility bag.
Well "The survival handbook" by Raymond Mears has a chapter called 'Possibles' which gives an overview of kit to take...

To further, pin it down it has one of my farvorite wilderness quotes, it is the story about the old hunter looking at a new hunter's .44 handgun, and then offering him some advice.
...and on page 198 :

"Some folk reckon the best way to deal with a bear is a 44 magnum revolver. if so the following advice gleaned from an expert backwoodsman should be followed. 'Be sure to file off the front sight of your magnum before entering bear country.' Why? 'It's less painful that way when the bear shoves it up your ...!'

sound familiar? :D

Wow. That is some library you have Stuart. I hope your house insurance covers that small fortune!! ;)

Are these books or pamphlets available softcopy eg PDF as I simply do not have the space for a physical book collection?

I read an article that stated that we retain about 10-20% of the information we read so with that in mind you must be an amazing font of knowledge?

I ordered Thomas J. Elpel's 'Botany in a day' a few weeks ago. And I must say it's better than I thought it would be. Even though you will not find every plant that's mentioned in the book in the UK (or in NL, in my case), there's still quite an amount left.

It covers about 130 plantfamilies and describes their characteristics, by using the varying amount of petals, sepals, stamen, etc. each family has.
I'm planning to organise these a bit more systematically and learning them by heart (for speeding things up). In combination with a field guide / flora (to check my outcome), with the useable parts, etc. written in it - I must be able to ID and use the plants I come across.

Bang on by the sound of it. Now too find the book.

I am slowly creating a html library. Lost some books at a scout camp 20ish years ago, I am still trying to replace all of them. Lucky my Gilwells were at home.

What the plan is to have all of the books worth carrying with me, and to also start making my own refrence. Any one who Bird watches will tell you it is a nightmare to find a decent single refrence.

It would be easier to do in a database or other form, but in html it basically runs on anything.

I read an article that stated that we retain about 10-20% of the information we read so with that in mind you must be an amazing font of knowledge?

It depends, on the person, and the situation. If you interact with the information, you tend to retain more. The more you enjoy a book, the more you retain as well.

From the conversations (moot) and the course with Mors I would like to make a start on flora, locally first and then wider afield, its something I havent paid much attention to in the past, something I wish to rectify now, I would appreciate a starter list, I have a few already, collins trees, food for free, wild food.

Find the Collins Gem books really useful.

The best herb book is a version of Culpepper's complete herbal. You can get the original from works and similar. The one people recommend is the colour one I think, which is availible on Amazon. I am sure someone will put up the full title.

There are a couple of tree books out of Kew, that are surposed to be good reading, and contain lots of info.

Have a look for your local Botanical gardens, they tend to have a lot of experts who do walks and things. Plus they will have native species labeled up for you to look at. There is a garden owned by them, called the scienific garden I think somewere london way, that has every single herb, and medical plant labeled. Worth checking around, Arwick castle has just opened their new gardens, and I am sure they have something similar.

Books are good, but I still spot trees the way my scout leader taught me. If you can find someone who can teach you the little tricks of the trade it is so much easier.

Cheers for the suggestions, I did a search on Abe Books and found quite a few, most only a couple of quid each, including the culpepper one, so I've ordered a "few" :rolleyes:

Stephen

I feel your pain. I want the colour myself, but have an RHS book that is brillant, and the original version of Culpeppers.

Books are my crack, I am always giving in and buying them.

By the way there is a Collins Gem Food For Free, if you have not seen it.

Rumor has it that the Ray Mears book in question is available as a PDF somewhere on the web, though it is still in copyright and shouldn't be.
There are a lot of old books available here - Internet Archive

As stupid as it is, I like to own the book, while I will never take them out into the wilds again. Because of the interests, it is not very often I buy a new non-fiction book so the author does not really benefit.

There was a scan doing the rounds, but it was massivly edited, and I think the newer book.

The Survival Handbook (1990) - One I want
The Outdoor Survival Handbook (1992) - Seen a very bad scan of this one.

I have a feeling the one I want is the one that gets scary money on ebay.

It is a kind of weird world I now live in, I buy certain medias and they sit on the shelf looking pretty while I use them in another form complely. Buy CD's listen to MP3's. Buy books to read html files.

The portable library is worth the effort for many reasons. It is its own light source. You can change font sizes, and colours(Apprently a black background, with yellow is easier to read). I do not own expensive books, but replacing some of them would be impossible, or as I said 20 years still trying to find some of them. The other side of it is, as I said sometimes you need three guides to do one job well. This way I can carry a complete library in the size and space of a tobacco tin, or in a mobile.

The dump.com has some pdf of scout stuff, I own a lot of originals including some of the leaflet books, that I should store in plastic bags, and maybe only handle with gloves on.

A nice little find in the Amsterdam library; "How to build an igloo, and other snow shelters" by Norbert E. Yankielun
I have never tried to construct a snow shelter before (hard to do with zero to a few inches of snow once a year) but if there will ever be enough snow cover to make one I'll get this book out.

Here's some blurb about the books contents from the writer's website:
