The Drummer Boy

The Drummer Boy is my latest novel about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.

It is packed with trivia about the Napoleonic War, His Majesty's Theatre in Aberdeen, the history of Tidworth Military Hospital and about modern day nursing and emergency first aid as well as the battlefield medical care during the Battle of Waterloo.

How To Make

Preheat the oven to 200 C or gas mark 4.

Grease a baking tray tin with the spread, butter or margarine.

In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar and oats. Rub in the spread, butter or margarine.

Press halve of the mixture into the baking tray tin.

In another bowl mix the dates, apples and the spice. Add this to pressed mixture, allowing a gap of about 1cm at the edges.

On top of this add the remaining oats mixture. Press down firmly and even the mixture.

Bake for about 25 minutes.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool before cutting into slices.
