Summary The journey from boyhood to manhood has rarely included such diverse experience. From military training in the Guards Depot to Trooping the Colour, from academic failure to intelligence work in Northern Ireland. From helping Rudolf Hess out of an ambulance to being tasked with taking the Queen's portrait. He even trod on Lady Diana's toe! Tim Rees colors every experience with profound and often idiosyncratic observations that offer the reader a taste of the sometimes humorous, often arduous, and, on too many occasions, brutal reality. Most importantly, Tim's stories are about shared experiences. Many of the men who shared Tim's experiences died aboard the Sir Galahad on June 8 1982. Along the way, this synthesis of evidence and interpretation debunks myths that have arisen in recent years, particularly about the Falklands. The fact that Tim was Battalion photographer means that the visual record included is unique, unpublished, and memorable.
