    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It brought back many memories. Some memories I'd forgotten, others I remembered as if it was yesterday. I was working in another part of the Falklands at the time , but I recognised some of the people mentioned and also many of the events that took place. You don't have to be a Squaddie, Matelot or Brylcream Boy to appreciate the book - but it helps! I think any "civvies" reading this will enjoy the rich humour and ready repartee found between your average sapper. They will wonder at the "acclimatisation" methods we endured in Germany, shiver at the endless hours we worked in freezing rain, sleet and snow in the Falkands, but that's what this book shows, the spirit of the Royal Engineers through adversity - or something like that anyway! Well recommended

    The book was awesome, I didn’t stop laughing as all the memories started coming back. Unfortunately I was the one who was told to prime the lighting tower by Pete (Cpl) even though I tried to explain that he was mad. Thanks for the memories.

    An excellent account of a really funny but at the same time difficult 6 month period in the lives of 19 to 20 somethings. As a participant in this adventure !! it brought back many memories that had me in tears. Only some of which were tears of sorrow. A well portrayed piece of work.
