Lovereading view...

A message from Mark Ormrod, triple amputee and former Royal Marine:
'being able to tell a joke or "crack a funny" when morale is low can help even the worst of situations seem that little bit better'

A message from the Rt Hon. David Cameron MP, prime Minister:
'I welcome this initiative and believe that the idea of a book of jokes - The Laughing Soldier - is inspired! I send you my best wishes for the success of this venture'

The Lovereading view...

War and humour may at first glance seem a strange mix, and to many of us it would seem inconceivable that surrounded by death, destruction and loss, a soldier can find comfort in a simple joke. However, the British Armed Forces have long been known for its 'laugh in the face of danger' mentality. To celebrate the bravery and heroism shown by British service men and women day in day out, The Laughing Soldier is published and proceeds will go to Project 65, a charity providing important work to veteran soldiers. What better way to think of them than to buy this book and laugh at the 'clean' and the 'dirty' jokes that have been brought together for their benefit. Richly rewarding so please support. The charity are also giving out copies on the Front Line where our soldiers are serving.
