More about the Author – Austin Hernon

After training it’s off to Germany to join a bridge building unit of the Royal Engineers.

During the same period I was often called upon to do extra curricular work for the local German authorities, such as: recovering bodies, searching for stolen items, repairing underwater pipes, and the best of all, rescuing a five hundred tonne barge stuck on a sandbank in the River Weser.

This, as well as the usual breakdowns and crashes on the road and items, such as tanks, fallen in the water during river crossings – all good fun.
