A 'NAUGHTY but nice' look at life in pre-war Pembrokeshire goes on sale in Haverfordwest on Tuesday (August 19).

'History in the Raw', written by local historian Mark Muller, brings Pembrokeshire's past to life through a collection of poignant - and at times bawdy - personal anecdotes.

Many of the stories in the book are as told to Mr Muller by his late friend Bill Jenkins, who died in 2012.

Superbly illustrated by Carole Dean, the book is both funny and risqué, and tells of the social climate and eccentric local characters Bill experienced.

"I had the good fortune to know Bill for a dozen or so years and spent many hours mining the gold of 100 years of social history out of him," said Mr Muller.

"A born raconteur who started life in Croesgoch, his stories of life in the county just begged to be shared."

Profits from the book will be donated to the Adam's Bucketful of Hope Charity, which works to increase the provision of cancer care in Pembrokeshire.

Adam's mum Chris Evans-Thomas, who set up the charity in her son's memory, said she was looking forward to the launch, and anticipates a full house on the night.

At the launch, which takes place at 7pm at St Mary's Church, Haverfordwest, Mr Muller will read from the book, and will be selling copies, priced at £9.99.

Copies of the book will later be on sale at Victoria Book Shop, Bridge Street; Adam’s Bucketful of Hope charity shop, Dew Street, and other local book shops.
