I'm in the middle of reading an absolutley appalling 'SAS' novel that i picked up for 10p in a rafle sale. ( luck it was only 10p as it's shiite). Now I'm not a military hisorian or weapons expert but the aythor apperas to have made some amazing gaffes. 1. the book starts in WW2, one of the characters asks another what REME stands for - he gets the reply " Rear Echelon Mother F**ker" now apart from the fact that it obviulsy doesn't , would two Eighth Army Pte's really have known this phrase - methinks more Vietnam than El Alamein. 2. the book moves forward to 1951 and Malaya- where the new SAS trainees ( called Rookies in the book) do their jungle phase, interstingly enough they were flown in on a Hercules in 1951??? 3. One of the characters (still in 1951 mind) uses a clansman set to send a short burst transmission to HQ. 4. Apparently the AAC were flying around Malaya in 1951- now i always thought that the wartime AAC were disbanded in 1950 and reformed on Sept 1st 1957. Confusing. 5. The best bits are the weapons they had in 1951 - one of the Bren gunners uses a 300 round magazine?? how tall would that be?? another chap fires a 40mm round from his M203 that is fitted to his M1 Carbine ( in 1951!!!) There's also mentions of Bergens and SLR's in the early 50's, i would have thought that these items came along later. Anyway the book is called 'Exit Club' by Shaun Clarke and it is so pi$$ poor that it's quite good fun.
