Well, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but after 40 years, I have finally written an account of my Troop's experiences in the Falklands War.
It's called 'Belonging to 2 Troop, a Falklands Memoir' and its out now, through Riverside Publishing Ltd or direct to me.
Back in 1982, I was a young Royal Engineers Captain, serving with 9 Parachute Squadron, Royal Engineers. My troop of 52 parachute engineers sailed on the MV Norland with 2 Para, cross-decked to go ashore on D-Day with 3 Para, marched across East Falkland, fought in the Battle for Mount Longdon and cleared minefields around Port Stanley before sailing home.
The Troop has stuck together over the years and is due to hold its 40th Anniversary reunion in July. The book is for them, and I have gifted a copy to each living member and to the widows and families of those no longer with us.
The BBC ran with the story last week. I include an article they published on Thursday.
My aim in selling copies is just to recover my publishing costs. (Paperback £9.99, Hardback £14.99) I hope you can support me. Thank you.
