Andy McNab, the SAS veteran and author of Bravo Two Zero, will next month publish his fourteenth book, Brute Force. His first book, Bravo Two Zero was an account of the now famous eight man special forces patrol McNab commanded during the 1990-1991 Gulf War.

This is like a military website where troops upload their own film that has normally been taken by a helmet cam or mobile phone. There’s not just ‘bang bang’ but also some very funny clips from guys sitting in the middle of the desert and bored.

Frontline is a media club that uniquely combines eating, drinking and thinking. The Frontline Club after the Frontline Television News agency closed down. Frontline TV was created during the chaos and confusion of the Romanian revolution. The Club was set up by the surviving (many were killed while filming in on war zones) members of the original team of maverick cameramen. The site does a great job of ensuring that stories that fade from headlines are kept in sharp focus.

This is my day dreaming site. I can spend hours checking out all the luxury yachts for sale around the world. Today I noticed that there is one of my favourite (this week anyway) yacht’s for sale in the South of France. A Sunseeker 82 and a snip at £1.8 million. I hope that includes a full tank of diesel.

I’m a patron of this charity that is helping to care for the wounded in Britain’s current conflicts. What is H4H all about? It’s about the blokes, our men and women. It’s about a soldier who has lost both his legs, it’s about a young guy whose jaw is wired up so he has been drinking through a straw. It’s about a young guy who was handed a mobile phone as he lay on the stretcher so he could say goodbye to his wife.

The reason I spend far too much time looking at boats (that I’ll never buy) is because I have an apartment on the Italian coast and the harbour is full of Russian gin places. I have got to know a couple of the owners these past few years and they try to trip me up with Russian emails. But with reverso.net I can instantly translate them and send my reply’s in Russian and that really annoys them.

Well… I can only add that there is a very significant link missing there 😉
