    Thought you might like a heads up about a new book that has I have just found. It is called "Armed Action" and is a true stroy about a Junglie Lt Cdr during the invasion of Iraq. I have just read the first chapter and so far it looks very good.

    Its good for newbies actually, i've read it prior to my AIB for information about life on HMS Ocean and in the fleet air arm. Its a very good book but sometimes.... dare i say it, he is a tad up himself. If he uses the forums i'm dead arn't I!

    Amazon site:
    Here's me thinking ACOS CSAV (delegated to SAVO) was responsible for S+P in the FAA.
    Or even the Boss of NFSF(RW) at the coal face. Obviously not. Discuss .......

    Whatever, good luck to him. I might write a ditty on Bagging, but then the mighty Mark 2 wasnt that exciting lol.

    How did he drag himself away from his mirror to write a book. Still typical pilot "Lets talk about me." :boogie: :boogie: :boogie:

    Not a bad read. But quite a few inaccuracies as to what happened in Ocean. Made me wonder if we were actually in the same ship at the same time.

    Thought it wasn't too far away from the truth, I also think a bit of artistic license was pushed by the editors/producers.
