An honest and brave account of National Service in the 1950s Brian Robinson spares no detail in his story from farmer's son to a Gordon Highlander.


A Gordon For Me is an entertaining and compelling story of one man's experiences of the Armed Forces, and the true nature of international conflict. 60 years ago, Brian Robertson left his family farm to undergo two years of National Service. From Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Dundee to Cyprus, Brian experienced much, much more than the average farmhand ever would. The book starts off as an exploration of the way British National Servicemen were treated post-World War Two. It then takes an unexpected twist to examine and exemplify the ruthlessness and brutality of British colonialism in Cyprus at this time.
