Harry Always Was a Crap Hat
HARRY ALWAYS WAS A CRAP HAT When I wrote 'Harry was a Crap Hat' I had no idea that so many people would find it both interesting as well as funny, I originally wrote the book purely and simply because my wife told me to do it (don't tell me I'm the only man in the world who does as he is told), writing my autobiography at work also helped fill in the boring gaps of being a Civil Servant . 'Harry always was a Crap Hat' is a sequel telling all the stories that I omitted from my original memoirs, more stories of my childhood, of my time as a soldier in the Royal Corps of Transport, which includes my work as a Regimental Medical Assistant, and lastly my experiences as a Civil Servant within the Ministry of Defence. I have also included a chapter on my time served in the Royal Army Dental Corps and some of hard men I had the privilege, and honour, to serve and drink alongside in this slightly 'delicate' Corps. Most sequels, Die Hard 2, 3, 4, and 5 withstanding, are in my opinion a complete let-down, I don't think even the mesmerising acting abilities of Alan Rickman could have made any of these subsequent films a more compelling film to watch. Having said that please don't be put off buying this particular sequel, along with my dysfunctional family you will get to meet some more of the funny, ridiculous and downright bizarre civilians, soldiers and Civil Servants I have had the pleasure and displeasure to meet. From the age of eight years old when I buried my pet mouse Napoleon with full military honours, right up to my last days in the Civil Service when I stood on the Commandants' desk and farted in his face, you will understand why 'Harry always was a Crap Hat'.
