In these memoirs, Andy Petter recalls his life in the Metropolitan Police over 35 years the bulk of which was spent in London's Mounted Branch.
This account details the author's early life in the tranquil valleys of the South Downs through a hilarious account of his National Service with the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery and his early almost Dickensian years on the beat in London's east end.
His later account of progress through the mounted branch at virtually every area in London details a remarkable career where political upheaval and terrorism brought him into contact with tragedy and chaos.
For the equestrian, there are hilarious accounts of cussed horses with mean streaks that should never have been on the streets to gentle lovable characters that gave lifelong service to a force that sometimes forgot their loyalty. Perhaps it's these anecdotes that give the book its flavour of policing on horseback.
