‘A BOY FROM NOWHERE’ Terry Cavender may have been ‘A boy from nowhere’ but he certainly didn’t hang about for long. Born and raised in a gritty Northern mill town called Keighley in 1947, Terry left home in 1963 and joined the Junior Leaders Battalion of the Royal Army Service Corps as a Junior Private. Over the next Thirty years he was promoted through the ranks before finally becoming a commissioned officer. He left the Royal Corps of Transport in the rank of Major in 1993. In that time he had served in Air Despatch units at RAF Changi and Seletar in Singapore where he took part in suppressing a local uprising, he also served in 8 Regiment, 617 Tank Transporter Squadron, and 38 Squadron RCT in West Germany, all with hilarious episodes that were all self induced. He shook a lot of important hands during his time as a soldier and not least with Lord Avon (Sir Anthony Eden) who had previously been the Prime Minister of Britain, others that followed were Enoch Powell, Lord Prescott, Sir Harry Secombe, Barbara Windsor, Jeremy Kyle, key members of the Royal Family, Angela Merkel, and the odious Jimmy Savile. They’re all in this book, warts and all. There are a lot of artistes in the list of celebrities because Terry has also delved into the world of entertainment. He has written, directed, produced and acted in several plays, pantomimes and radio plays. He also had the lead role in a comedy film which won a coveted Golden Bear award at the Berlin Film Festival and whilst stationed out in the Far East he played a background part in the film ‘Stand Up Virgin Soldiers.’ Truly a man of many talents. Terry Cavender is a well known name in the Civil Service which is where he finished his working career as a Staff Officer at the Defence School of Transport in Leconfield, East Yorkshire. He had a key job organising visits to the largest military driving school in Europe, Royalty, Government Ministers, Senior Civil Servants and Officers, Local and Foreign Dignitaries, MP’s and Film/TV/Radio Personalities. This book is a hilarious record of one boy from nowhere who lived life to the full, from his Dad’s sheep rustling days in a motorbike and side car, all the way up to him hanging upside down on a trapeze swing trying to win the part in a TV advert. Terry will have you both mesmerised and crying with laughter.
