Kindly Light

The book Kindly Light: The Story of Blind Veterans UK was written by Andrew Norman, the grandson of one of our First World War blind veterans, Thomas Waldin.

The book, published on the 24th September 2015, tells the story of Blind Veterans UK, formerly known as St Dunstan's, from its origins in 1915 to the present day. Founded by Sir Arthur Pearson 100 years ago, many inspiring stories from blind veterans are retold in the book as well as a great account of the charity's history.

Andrew, who qualified in medicine after being educated in Zimbabwe and Oxford, is now an established writer whose published works include biographies of Thomas Hardy, Adolf Hitler and Charles Darwin.
