THE RECRUIT by Dave Patton
After a fire in a Glasgow tenement flat where the owner died, a crew of firefighters are going through the house to ensure that there are no hot spots etc.
They also salvage what they can of the man’s belongings. Two of them are veterans, while the youngest member is recently arrived at the station from the training school. He is not a native of the city but comes from an isolated community on Scotland’s West coast and is finding city life very different!
The old hands are teaching the young recruit the ropes, but they can’t teach him how to deal with death…that’s a path he needs to learn for himself..
