Frighteningly true to life!
on 29 June 2016
I served through the 70's / 80's and worked with most of the characters Charlie Owen describes!!!
Is it true? Yes, scarily so at times. I found myself reading of the gags and wind-ups, already knowing how they'd turn out as I'd either perpetrated them (or been on the receiving end!)
Is it embellished? Probably, but it doesn't detract from the readability. It's called dramatic licence.
Is it funny? Absolutely, side-splitting, laugh out loud, nutter on the bus hilarious!
I would unreservedly recommend the entire series - and it doesn't matter if you've been in the job or not (but it does help!)
