Because my voice hadn't broken at the time I was more interested in the news than Page 3. Obviously this was soon to change.I’m sorry old chap but are you sure of that? That cheeky invasion by Argentina did seem to catch out almost the entire cabinet, MOD and Uncle Tom Cobley et al.
You must have been a very astute paperboy in 1982. Certainly more astute than I at the time (a 15 year old paperboy)!
Far too similar for me and made me think "money spinner for Follett"View attachment 493795
On the day after Halloween, in the year 1327, four children slip away from the cathedral city of Kingsbridge. They are a thief, a bully, a boy genius and a girl who wants to be a doctor. In the forest they see two men killed.
A good book but the characters and plots are too similar to the first book.
And made into the most execrable television drama I have ever had the misfortune to watch."WORLD WITHOUT END"

If you haven't already, try 'A Brilliant Little Operation' by Paddy Ashdown. A very good offering on the same subject.View attachment 493794
One of only two survivors of the famous Cockleshell Hero raid, Bill Sparks' war and post-war career has never before been told in full. In this gripping book, he describes not only his part in Operation Frankton, the daring Gironde raid, and his escape back to Britain, but how he fought with the Greek Sacred Squadron thereafter. Always something of a military maverick, Bill's memoir is truly action-packed. Sadly this great character has now died.
A decent book but I was disappointed with the raid only being covered by the first chapter.
