Summary

Bursting with life and bawdy humour, National Serviceman Brigg is now a Regular Army sergeant defending the Empire in the beds and bars of Hong Kong.

Peace-time diversions include sensual fireworks with a pair of delicious Chinese twins and a tender, erotic affair with the lonely wife of an American serviceman.

Great listen to. Nice novel.

Set 20 odd years after the original and in Hong Kong this is a good book. Nicely written, superbly performed and duck tails nicely with the first book. This book I think captures army life in the 70s well and even if you are not into military stories is a great listen to. Loved it and I think Leslie Thomas is a fantastic author of British social history in his stories.
