Why Oh Why Couldn t You Have Burnt The Bloody Place Down

So after three and a half years you make it to Mons Officer Cadet School, including two years in a war, only to discover the terrorist who had tried to kill you with a grenade and who, you in return, had tried to shoot, ends up in the bed next to you! What do you do? Advice from the staff to check your bed for a grenade every night before you get into it doesn’t really help. Six months of brutality, tiredness, sleeplessness and absolute pressure follow with course attendees dropping like flies. A year at a boys’ regiment when he is persecuted for not burning down the Officers’ Club follows and his career ends at a tank depot where an insane ex-para has storemen and vehicle specialists pretending to be fit paras. And the final stress is to look after a full general who is a menace to wood and the main contributor to Elastoplast’s profit that year! Join our hero, Jack, in this the second of the trilogy and be ready for the third!
