The story of an ordinary man who lived through extraordinary times, told with love, laughter and song. Syd Smith fought at El Alamein, became a POW and ended the war in the notorious Colditz Castle in Germany. In the 1950s, PC Syd patrolled London's South Bank and met a gallery of characters whom he tried his best not to arrest. Arthur tells this 20th-century story with laughter, music reflections and a hilarious photo. "Rather lovely" (The Times). "A touching and funny tribute to Arthur Smith's own father. Beautiful" ***** (Young-Perspective.net).
