A 'must read' for any National Serviceman. This book was impossible to put down. Very, very funny and full of colourful characters.
by John Remfry
As someone who served in the Far East in the '50s, this book
is 'spot on.' Well written and hugely enjoyable.

Great reading. it brought back all the things I remember - and some forgotten! I could just smell the vegetation and hear Mary shouting:
"Want any fruit, Johnny?"

Born in Plymouth in 1937, Nigel Springthorpe completed his National Service with the Far East Air Force in Singapore and North Borneo, before returning to the Civil Service. He subsequently served in a number of executive positions, including Private Secretary to a Cabinet Minister. Retiring early, on medical grounds he was later employed by a minicab company, which provided the inspiration for his second novel.
