Summary

From his humble beginnings as a raw recruit aged 15 to his departure from the army aged 27 and a fully qualified Helicopter Air Gunner/Pilot, Alan Brown recounts anecdotes and tales from his life as a soldier in the British army in the 60s and 70s. This refreshingly frank and often funny book follows Alan as he begins his army career in The Junior Leaders Regiment, Royal Armoured Corps, something he describes as almost akin to an army boarding school, through his time as a tank gunner with The Royal Scots Greys and finally to his favourite role -that of Helicopter Air Gunner/Pilot in Germany with 655 Army Aviation Squadron.
