As my father served in 1 GHQ Liaison Regiment 'Phantom', initially in G squadron this book was especially poignant. Phantom is probably one of the least known regiments of WW11 but was also one of the most highly trained.It was an elite regiment of both officers and other ranks, men did not volunteer, they were chosen, and they came from all walks of life. Often referred to as almost a private army they were a specialised regiment that proved their worth time and time again, and did so with a remarkable sense of humour in view of the circumstances they were operating under. The format of the book with a combination of regimental history and personal reminiscences is an excellent way of telling the regiments history, and makes the book accessible to all.The personal stories were both funny and sad (and very accurate). Working at the very front of the front line and sometimes behind enemy lines their's was a hazardous occupation.By spiriting in and out and leaving no trace, and reporting enemy positions back to headquarters they well and truly deserved their name 'Phantom'. Hopefully the Parlour's will continue researching and writing about Phantom, this regiment is well worth remembering.
