Wow, that's cool! Congrats, Ma'am, on your 50th.

Did he write it himself or did he have a ghost writer?

Sue, have you ever read that book by Dougie Beattie, MC from the Royal Irish Regt about his time in Garmsir? I can't remember the title now...

No I don't think she has. She's at TA tonight. Do you have it/have you read it?
