Tokens of Youth free pdf Beginning by recording his birth in his grandmother's cottage in Chinley, Derbyshire, Brian Fish recounts the story of his early life in his third book, Tokens of Youth. Focusing on his own upbringing, as well as his family heritage, Brian shares his memories of growing up, moving schools and attending university. After his father gained permanent employment in the Civil Service, Brian and his family moved from the idyllic peaks of Derbyshire to the thriving capital of London. It was here that Brian discovered his ability for languages, receiving an excellent education in both English and French. The family later moved to Leicester where his education suffered, failing to build on his promising start in French, but instead involving him in the world of science. Brian went on to win a scholarship to study mining engineering at Birmingham University where he spent the first three years of the war. Now a young adult, Brian was taken into the army, later seeing active service in Burma, relying on his strong Christian faith to guide his behaviour, his words and his actions. Tokens of Youth will appeal to those who enjoy reading autobiographies, particularly those set in the 1920s and 1930s.
