Ever wondered what it would be like to combine your interests with your career? Serving with the British Army allowed me to combine my career with my innate passion for birds. The stories in my book are based on my experiences; with birds, people, and the places I have been to. Both in and out of the British Army. I also talk about when I first became aware of birds and in the last chapter, I share about my transition from civvie street into the army and back into civvy street and the importance of being connected with birds and nature. More Birds Than Bullets is not just as the title suggests, there is more to it than that, it can be seen as a metaphor for life's experiences. I hope you find the book amusing, unbelievable and maybe even shocking. School Boy - Birdwatcher - Soldier - Counsellor
