Product description


Within NATO only Britain and the USA discriminate against homosexuals in the armed forces, and there are indications that more than 260 homosexuals have been forced to leave Britain's forces since 1990. Drawing on many first-hand experiences, this book is a personal testimony and a plea for change. The author served as a naval officer for two years before acknowledging his homosexuality and resigning his commission.

From the Author

Intriguing to see how quickly the ban was lifted
I wrote the book in 1994 and 1995 and it was part of the campaign to drive the British Government into lifting the ban. Just five years later it seems as though it was written in another era. The ban has been lifted and as of May 2000 three servicemen had been re-instated. It just goes to show how quickly things can happen.
