You Two! Fall in - in Three Ranks

Synopsis

You Two! Fall in - in Three Ranks by John Silkstone

This book is about some of the funny incidents that I got myself into whilst in the Army. Being a book of anecdotes it is easy to read and put down again without loosing the thread. Endorsement has not been received or sought from the people mentioned in these anecdotes. I enjoyed my time in the army, which lasted from 5th November 1956 to the 1st June 1981. There were bad times and good times. I'm glad to say that the good outweighed the bad. The good times stay with you and, thankfully, the bad fade into antiquity. I have met many brave and outstanding people in my time; they performed their duty for Queen and Country in true military fashion. The surprising thing was that these outstanding men were the bane of the depot drill sergeant's life. They had two left feet, couldn't swing their arms and, once dressed in uniform; they resembled a sack of potatoes tied around the middle with string. One soon learnt that the old saying 'Never judge a book by its cover' couldn't be more apt.
