My book is about my Engineering Apprenticeship which was during the years 1960-1966. My apprenticeship was in the Royal Ordnance Factory in Woolwich, the ‘home’ of the Royal Artillery, and the biggest gun being made at that time was the 120mm Tank Gun. The smallest was the 81mm Mortar. Included in my book is my life outside the factory, and some of it is set in beautiful parkland where my mates and I would get up to all sorts of pranks. There is included on my part an attractive woman down the canal.

The author was born in 1945 in a small town called Belvedere which lies between Dartford in Kent, and Woolwich in London. He went to a small primary school and was taught by Catholic nuns. He is a Catholic himself and his religion is very important to him. He failed his 11+ exams and went on to attend a Church of England secondary school.


He left school at fifteen and started an engineering apprenticeship, he had a natural aptitude for the job.
