Former Shirebrook soldier Lee James Blunt has published a collection of poems.

From the Trench to the park bench gives an insight into the experiences and challenges he endured and overcame before and after his time serving as a soldier.

Lee said: “The collection is a two-way process, it gives the reader a detailed insight into the emotions of a soldier who has faced the harsh brutality of modern warfare. And additionally it helped me as the writer to release any deep thoughts I held.” Available on Amazon.
