Steven Ossie

I was 17 years and 4 months old when I put pen to paper, and I had just committed myself to the British Army to serve 22 years with an option of 9. This meant that I had to serve at least 9 years before I could get out of the Army,                       What was I thinking.?

"Having served in the RCT and along side Steve ossie Osborne this book had me in tears of laughter and dread reminding me of the dark days of basic training (Buller Barracks)to the laughs of Driver training and eventually my first posting not just a great read for the ex troggs or serving members but a great read for anyone that was involved with the Army...... loved it"

"Hey All,

I bought Steven Ossies book online but thought I would rate it on here. Brilliant read, kept me up till the wee small hours and truthfully I laughed and cried at times but most of all it reminded me of all the people it was an honour to meet in all my time in the army, Ozzy included, buy the book and enjoy."

Michael Boyle

This is the true story of a boy shunned by his family, thrown out of the family home and forced to sleep rough on the streets of London. After three years on the streets and getting work were he could, he saw a sign. "Join The British Army". Now 17 years old he walked in to the army careers office and signed up for 22 years. Stevens story concentrates on the lighter side of the Army,including many of his cock-ups along the way,up and down the ranks like a Yo Yo due to too many drunken brawls. From his parents to army instructors they all said he was a waster and would achieve nothing in life. Seventeen years later he walks back into the camp he had joined as a recruit, as the new Regimental Sergeant Major. They all said he couldn't do it, he proved them all wrong.
