Two long standing members of Arrse have just put the finishing touches to their book 'Picking Up the Brass' and it's out for you all to buy! If I can't convince you to buy this book, then PM convey over here. I can guarantee you aload of sh*ts n giggles with this book, from start to finish!


Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen of ARRSE.

Myself and The Rigger have spent the last couple of years writing and trying
to get published, our book.

It's a comedy novel entitled "Picking Up the Brass" and it's finally
available for purchase. Quite a few people on ARRSE have had a look at
sample chapters etc and the feedback has been favourable. With a bit of
luck, it'll read like an extended NAAFI post!! The blurb on the back reads.

The book that Andy Mcnab wouldnt want you to read!

Picking up the Brass is a hilarious look at what real life
was like for the majority of young men who joined
the British Army in the Eighties. It follows Eddy Nugent, a
bored fifteen year old, living in Manchester, as he travels
through the drinking, swearing and sex-obsessed world
of our nation's finest. It takes him from basic training in
Harrogate and on to Aldershot and the rum soaked
shores of Belize.
Written by two ex-soldiers, the book captures the
uniques aspects of the British Military sense of humour,
through the language of 'Squaddie Speak'.
A must for anyone who has served, anyone who is
planning to serve or anyone who has ever thought,
"Surely everyone in the army isn't trained to kill people
with a toothpick?"

Registration with Amazon etc is taking a bit longer than we'd hoped, so
we've done our own little print run of 200, to get things started. This
batch will only be for mainland UK. Once our online registration is
complete, we'll be able to sort out worldwide orders.

The normal price will be £9.99 (+ p and p) but for the first 200, we'll
charge £15 (+ p and p). This will get you a signed copy and we'll stick a
quid to the British Legion.

If you'd like a copy - email myself or the rigger at

convoycock @ hotmail.co.uk or therigger @ hotmail.co.uk

and we'll get straight back to you.

Cheers

Convoy

To me it sounds like the pongos version of `the red sailor` though that was set a few decades ago. If it is as good it will be a cracking read.

Good luck lads
 
I'm a bit confused. I bought a copy of this highly readable book a few months ago, following it's recommendation on AARSE. I still find the Army mystifying though! I agree that it's very funny. It had me giggling on the train.
