"Brasso, Blanco & Bull" by Tony Thorne - hilarious and affectionate reminiscences of Army life in the 1950s.

The true, hilarious story of what it was really like to do National Service!

Tony Thorne was one of two million young men called up in post-war Britain to do two years of national service. From the disastrous early medical to his demob in 1958, Tony's powers of recall are a testimony to the lasting impression made on him by this slice of Army life. A truly affectionate memoir which will strike a chord with many.

A great read for anyone who served in the National Service, or takes an interest in this slice of military history.

"A great reminder for those of us that did it and a great treat for those that didn't" - Windsor Davies.
