If you look very carefully on the front piece you can see a Reid Joke in me sweating a bit

Hopefully the new ones wont feature me
There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

That front picture must be of Col. Thinifers, not often seen in re-enactment.

The slim looking regular on the cover has been replaced by a fatter looking highlander, see the 'reviews' section for my thoughts on the book.
