Tom Scott’s Poole Days Published – Illustrations by Alec Wills


Tom Scott has been wishing to publish a book ‘one day’ all about his amusing memories of Old Poole, Dorset. 


After writing many articles for a number of publications, Tom’s new book, Tom’s Poole Days has been published by Marketing Bugle publications.

The illustrations have been provided by Alec Wills, local artist, also born in Poole and where Alec’s drawings really bring Tom Scott’s stories to life.

The book is available from Tom’s main book website: Tom Scott’s Poole Days​



Tom Scott is  married with a large family.

His boyhood education was spent at Hamworthy First School, beginning in 1935 followed by Henry Harbin, until the leaving age of fourteen.

A five year apprenticeship at J. Bolson as a Lofts man was next, until he was enlisted into the Royal Navy as a Shipwright.

It’s around this period that Tom Scott has chosen to select a few amusing situations that happened to him.
