  1. Annoymous

    Antique Drum completes the trilogy A Military Education in which Miles Player, a young officer in the Prince Regent’s Light Infantry, narrates his experiences of growing up in the British Army in the 1950s, which in many ways were closer to the 1930s than the 1960s and were the final days of the British Empire. The first novel On Fire was set in Hong Kong and Korea and was the vivid story of a harsh war. In the second novel Silken Dalliance the regiment served in West Germany as Cold War frontiersmen. Life was complicated by the antics of a commanding officer who had a Jekyll and Hyde personality; and was foreshortened by orders to move to Kenya to fight in the Emergency. We left the characters in their troopship in the Arabian Sea off East Africa stunned by the Commanding Officer mysteriously falling overboard. In Antique Drum Miles continues the story covering fighting in Kenya, the Suez Crisis and a small war in the Aden Protectorate.
