Picking Up The Brass

Apologies if this has previously been posted.

I have just ordered the book Picking Up The Brass on recommendation. Has anyone read it? Also any other books along the same lines?

I read some mil books but get fed up with the usual Special Forces save the day! Although one of my favourite books is called The Drumbeat of Jimmy Sands. A fictional book based around real events in NI.

"Picking up the Brass" is a great book. Very funny and to be recommended.

But if you're patient, I'll sign you a copy of my first book; "Picking ***********".

It's about a young boy who is a magician but who joins the Booties and flies out to Afghanistan, once his Nimbus 300 has cleared customs at Gateway House. Once there, he hooks up with 'Jimbo Dobbie', a dwarf who guides him through life in Sangin until they are able to kill the Evil Wizard Laden, who has already been killed by Septics.

Hey Mr Slaughter, If you're thinking about it don't read the last review (for both of the books). A nice character called Scaley has given us a right shoeing.

You can't please everyone!!!

Just kidding C_C. I'm actually half way through it for the second time. I leave it in with the rest of my morale kit for when I'm on suicide watch and need a laugh.
