9780099490043: Stand Up Virgin Soldiers (Virgin Soldiers Trilogy 3)

The worst has happened. On the eve of their return to Blighty, Brigg and his fellow National Servicemen find themselves sentenced to another six months in Panglin Barracks...

Many of the surviving characters from The Virgin Soldiers live again in these pages: dogged Tasker, the odious Sergeant Wellbeloved, the vulnerable Colonel Bromley Pickering and the comically touching Juicy Lucy.

But we encounter new characters too: the fanatical and demented Lieutenant Grainger; the endearing Welshman, Morris Morris - strong as a horse but bafflingly buxom; US Private Clay - mysteriously lost in transit by the American Army; and last, but not least, Bernice Harrison, the sporting nurse who threatens to replace the wayward Lucy in Brigg's affections...

"'Scenes rivalling the best of D. H. Lawrence'" ( Daily Telegraph)

"'Splendidly conveys...compassion, excitement, entertainment'" ( Evening Standard)

From the Publisher:
