Established in 1984 as a bookroom in a Lowestoft guest house 'A Book for all Reasons' has been mailing books to all parts of the world since launching their own website in 1996 and selling via ABE since May 1998. No longer a guest house but a private house (and without a bookroom) they carry a small general stock and specialise in British military and naval history, the local history of Suffolk and in the works of Dornford Yates.
Books about the WW2 experiences of personnel of the Royal Naval Patrol Service, expanded from the peace-time trawler crews to take on mine-sweeping and anti-submarine duties
