You know you’ve reached that point in your life when there is an urge to put down on paper some of your past experiences in life. Some of these experiences were most enjoyable; there were many others which were not.
My story begins when I leave infant school; it gives a basic insight into my time at secondary school and the many problems I caused my family and friends. The story then follows my Military career which took me to Hong Kong, Malaya, Singapore and Korea followed by numerous tours of duty in the UK, Germany Canada and Cyprus.
Travelling the world, I experienced life to the full; there were many good times in the Far East followed by the many bad times in Northern Ireland and the first Gulf War.
It covers briefly my career path when I left the Army and was employed as the Transport Operations Manager with an International cosmetic company on the south coast, finishing with my semi-retirement.
This story is not unique to me, there are many other ex-service people who have experienced what I’ve written and more, I’m sure there may be some who read this, and it may bring back fond memories of their past experiences, I hope so.
