    Yes - thanks for this. I've been listening about it on Radio 4 today.

    St. John's Ambulance/Red Cross have just started a new campaign to raise awareness and save thousands of deaths a year that could other wise be avoided if people knew and applied simple first aid.

    They want the booklet to go out to as many people as possible.

    Have sent for mine.

    Thanks 19f!

  • Thanks for the link, ordered mine not too long ago. I'm a lifeguard so am always being tested on my first aid skills at training sessions, this will come in handy when I'm swotting up before the sessions! :)
