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.

Add some more oil and fry with garlic, ginger and cumin seeds. Stir fry for about two minutes.

Add the rice, lentils and cinnamon stick. Stir thoroughly and add the vegetable stock.

Bring to the boil and cook at high heat for about ten minutes. Cover with a lid and reduce the heat.

Simmer for about 25 minutes or until the stock liquid has absorbed and the lentils and rice are tender.

Remove the cinnamon stick. Add the raisins and spinach and then stir and cook for another two minutes until the spinach leaves have wilted.

Serve with your favourite bread.
