Fretless, actually "Whiskey Galore" is part of a series of books about the fictitious island of Todday (based on the Island of Barra and other outer Hebrides) where Mackenzie lived during WW2 and his experiences with the Home Guard, if I recall correctly the first book(als now VERY rare) is called "keep the Home Guard turning" then Whiskey Galore and then the 3rd book is "Rockets Galore" about the setting up of a Rocket range in the Hebrides. The islands and its characters appears in other Mackenzie tales too, especially the ones about the Laird Ben Nevis on which the "Monarch of the Glen" TV series is (very)loosly based, They are a damned good read!! if you can find them
