Biteback author (and investor) Lord Ashcroft is clearly going for some sort of publishing record. We published his excellent report on the last election, Minority Report in mid September, but early next month he is bringing out a new book called George Cross Heroes, which he wrote about in the Daily Telegraph recently.

Two books in two months. If only all authors were so prolific.

Lord A has a longstanding interest in military medals, having built up a massive collection of Victoria Crosses over the years. His Victoria Cross Heroes book became quite a bestseller.

And as if that wasn’t enough, on November 12th, the Imperial War Museum opens the Ashcroft Gallery which will house his collection of VCs, and put it on view for the first time.

Well worth a visit, and as the Imperial War Museum is a brisk 5 minute walk from our office on Albert Embankment, I might well pop along myself one lunchtime and check it out.

Sadly it’s only my big cheese boss Mr Dale who will be attending the launch. But I’m sure he will remember the little people when filling his doggie bag. Or not.
