Good Day, Just wanted to let know about a recently published book called "These are my Credentials" by British Army Brigadier Jeff Little OBE. An amusing set of short stories that maybe true and maybe not!! military tales of the unexpected In the first issue we line up as follows: Black Taxi Belfast – Northern Ireland – Present Day. The tale of a senior British Army officer who arrives at Belfast City Airport after a regimental dinner in Surrey the night before. He has a serious hangover but that is only the start of his troubles as he does not get quite the reception that he was expecting! Volume 1 Hell let loose When Kuwait’s oilfields were set alight by retreating Iraqi troops anxious to flee the approaching coalition forces, the fire-fighting effort needed to douse them was enormous. The conventional ‘Red Adair’ style approach of snuffing the blaze out with an explosion was expensive and dangerous. Enter 2 Russians with a tank and a jet engine and just watch how they do the job! Volume 1 Death’s Door Longmoor Army Camp – Hampshire – 1975. Having completed his commissioning course at Sandhurst’s Royal Military Academy, a junior subaltern arrives at a training camp for his ‘special-to-arm’ course on joining the Army. The accommodation in a ‘tin-town’ of metal huts is not ideal, but one dark night he discovers just how deadly it can be when he finds a body pinned to his bedroom door with a cleaver through its neck. Volume 1 - SANP One sleeping Ghurka Soldier wakes up to a rather nasty shock. Will make your toes curl and that's all we are saying! The first book of 6 is out on Amazon.
