Ex Soldier and Author. I was just sixteen years old when I joined the Army and stayed for fifteen years - half my life was given to this band of brothers but in truth it was my whole life. British Army on the Rampage is a seies of autobiographical novels that tell it how it was - warts and all. I wasn't in the SAS, I don't think I killed many people and if I did it was an accident. These are just the stories of a hell of a good time with real friends and comrades and the life we llived, the pranks we got up to and the friendships formed. I make no apologies for the fact that these memoirs are humourous because all in all I had one hell of an outrageously good time. And if war is a serious business at least we had a lot of laughs on the way...

Remembrance Day

NewsPosted by Sean Connolly Tue, November 10, 2015 09:28:40

It is that time of year when our Nation remembers Our Dead and those of the Commonwealth and Empire who have died for the principals of freedom and democracy. There's the old saying "They Died That We Might Live". I think we not only have a duty to remember those that have gone but also to make the most of our own lives.

Yesterday I had a brilliant day - I went to St. George's Hall in Liverpool to see the poppy cascade bedecking the colomns of that imposing building surrounded in sandbags and have a wee think about friends lost and found from my army days - and then it was on to Bay TV to be interviewed by Gerry Smyth about my novels on army life.* I guess I now felt like a proper author. I suppose you could say that the army gave me more than just a career. So to all my military friends everywhere - here or once here, thanks for all your support.
