Books on the Channel Islands



Australian Lifeguards, latterly known as Beach Guards, served Jersey faithfully and saved lives for more than fifty years until 2011 when the RNLI assumed responsibility. This book tells their inspiring story.

The author, David Knight, a retired Royal Australian Navy officer, has certainly struck on an eye-catching title for his book: THE OTHER JERSEY BOYS. However, his book’s focus is not a group of performers to rival the original Jersey Boys – Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Its alliterative sub-title, ‘Lifeguards, laughter, lifestyle, larrikins, lovin’, and libations’ will offer more than a clue to its themes.


In November 2017 we published a long-awaited book: CHEERS! Drinks and drinking in Jersey through the ages, written by island-based journalist and author Alasdair Crosby.

Before embarking on his writing career Alasdair worked in the wine trade, following which he wrote for many years on food and drink related subjects or the Jersey Evening Post. He has also, for some time now, produced his own excellent magazine under the title RURAL which focuses, not surprisingly, on local food and drink.

In writing CHEERS! Alasdair undertook a great deal of careful research so that his book is detailed and wide-ranging, never dull but always an interesting and entertaining read.
