by Rob Novak
Mischievous memoir of an RAF airman in the Falkland Islands and elsewhere during the 1980s.

Illustrated with contemporary photographs this light-hearted memoir contains plenty to entertain anyone with a military background and particularly those who served in the British Armed Forces during the 1980s

Newly-trained RAF mechanic Rob Novak is as mischievous as they come. He fills his workmate’s toolbox to the brim with grease, saws his friend’s bike part through so it falls in half on his way home and is threatened with having a moose’s head shoved up his bottom at his first RAF Christmas party...

"Vengeance was the order of the day," he remembers, "and I always said, ‘whatever you do to me, I’ll get ya back double!’ Well... what else was there to do?

In this hilarious account of his years in uniform in the 1980s, which included a tour on the Falklands, he recalls a wide variety of amusing episodes and situations which occurred in the line of duty, not to mention the pranks and practical jokes he and his colleagues played on each other.

His comical musings are sure to entertain anyone with a military background and will be an eye-opener to those unfamiliar with what really goes on behind the scenes in HM Armed Forces.
