Being the son of a soldier has a lot to answer for, let's be honest. In some cases you either follow in your father's footsteps or not. Writing this book has given me the opportunity to convey my memories to my children. To show them what it was like growing up in the British Army and later joining the Army Catering Corps. These are my experiences encompassing my career and my family life. A few nuggets of history have been thrown in for good measure; The "maze," Batus, San Salvador, Spandau in berlin, Soltau and many more. If you happen to stumble across this book and you are a soldier or a veteran, perhaps you may reminisce on places I've visited during my career. If it brings back those memories to you then I think I've accomplished what I intended to do.

About Anthony Moore

Anthony Moore was born in Kingston, Jamaica, during his father's career in the Army Catering Corps. Anthony followed in his father's footsteps and then decided to write his memoires encompassing all aspects of his army career and his return to "civvy" street. Later he was to leave catering behind him and move on to retail and now resides in Southampton with his wife and a chocolate labrador. His pastimes and hobbies include writing, photography, history and of course travelling. This is his first book; an autobiography. Anthony caught the writing bug and is now in the process of writing his second book which is about the history of the Army Catering Corps, and includes anecdotes from former soldiers from the once illustrious Regiment.
