This book covers over fifteen years of service as a volunteer with the Royal Green Jackets and Great Britain’s elite Special Air Service. The author was a trained parachutist with the UK, US and French Army. A qualified marksman and a silver standard cross-country skier, he was trained in explosives and was a specialist in long-distance communication.

His service took him from exchange visits with the 11th Special Forces in America in the West to service in the deserts of the Middle East, and from the jungles of the Far East to a once-in-a-lifetime meet up with the New Zealand SAS squadron.

Tred Parris, known to his friends as Freddie, has been married for 54 years with two children and five grandchildren. He has been retired for about 11 years. He is a beekeeper and enjoys his allotments with his wife, Georgina, including other activities such as dancing, walking, creating art and playing the ukulele. He has written several articles for local publications.

    I’ve just finished reading Tred’s booked and I enjoyed it. I liked the front cover and the title, which gives a gritty account of one man’s experiences with the elite and not so elite, spanning a period of 15 years.
    I think it was well written with a number of witty remarks thrown in to keep the reader’s attention, the lady boy story, the black bar story, the well rounded French lady and so on. The book gives the reader an insight into the vital role played by the TA volunteers who’s basic training is every bit as difficult as the regulars. It also expands on the difficulties imposed on the writer’s family and how he needed his own support when returning home from yet another venture to the far flung regions of the world.
    Well done Tred for sharing some your wonderful memories and congratulations on your first book.
    Bene factum.
