Important! Internet Scam

Some online sites are offering free copies of books by, or about, Leo Walmsley.
These are either eBooks or books in PDF format.

The Walmsley Society is warning that these are scams that are designed – at the very least – to trick people into disclosing their credit card details. This is how it works:

The web page promises to let you download the book straightaway.

If it sounds too good to be true, then it is. Clicking will reveal something like this next image, which says that you must be logged in to gain access to this free material:

Clicking further will ask you to sign up by entering your email address and choosing a password.
Note that it doesn't ask you to confirm your choice of password, which a genuine, secure site would ask for.

And this is where the damage gets done, should you succumb to the temptation. These people want your credit card details, claiming this is important to confirm your country in order to conform with licensing restrictions.

I can tell you that no company nor individual has the right to distribute books by Leo Walmsley, nor books about him as written or published by the Walmsley Society, free of charge. All of these books are protected by copyright.

Similar scams promising the download of free films and TV shows, using very similar wording and graphics, have resulted in users' credit cards being charged, despite promises that no funds will be taken.
And, not surprisingly, the free material has not turned up.

—— Please be warned ——

Turn of the Tide video

The British Film Institute has advised us that there are no plans to re-issue this title in other formats, despite its significance in the history of the British film industry.

However, Jane has secured the VERY LAST few copies of this film that was based on Leo's book Three Fevers.

Fred's book

Written by our very own Society Secretary Fred Lane, this book is about Leo Walmsley's personal wartime experiences during the First World War – a little-documented area of the conflict – using extracts from his own writings, with dozens of his photos and augmented with recently-acquired prime source material.
