Our roving reporter Alex Gordon tells us that despite the best efforts of Ophelia, the good news is the Iron Horse pub is still standing. The even better news is his book launch for ‘Who Stole Sitting Bull?‘ will still be able to go ahead on Thursday, November 16. It kicks off at 7pm. Heavens above! Would be great to have a catch-up with many friends. And, yes, there is a bar.
An honest and brave account of National Service in the 1950s. Brian Robertson spares no detail in his story, from simple farmer’s son to a Gordon Highlander.
A Gordon For Me is an entertaining and compelling story of one man’s experiences of the Armed Forces, and the true nature of international conflict.
What starts off as an exploration of the ecclectic nature of the army, takes an unexpected twist down the obediance, ruthlessness, and brutality of training and war.
This book is not a celebration of war.
