Been passed a signed copy of this by an ex RM officer (who persuaded the author to join HMF in the dim 'n' distant). Author: Ian Gardiner Top feckin read. The passer-on served there a year or so before the author and described this as the best two years of his life. Anyone else knocking around the sandy bit at the time who has read it and can comment? I only went there (many years later) 'cos the driver got lost! Edited for (ahem) pm spelling, grammar and imcomprehensibility!
