Hello sailor. The shady powers at the ARRSE Book Review forum have suggested I post The Lovely Iron Dukes review of Blogging From The Battlefield by Major Paul Smyth here at Rum Ration. Not for the quality of the review which to be frank, is mincing cak. But because the book has sailors in it. And all proceeds go to RBL. So you can do a good thing and get your hands on a cracking book. ARRSE - Blogging the Battlefield by Major Paul Smyth On a personal note, may I just say that when I read the book and realised Royal Navy were deployed on Herick 11 you shot up in my estimation? I have seen Fitzcarraldo so I can appreciate the difficulties involved in getting one of your big grey boats all the way up to Helmand. Well done.
