A light hearted and amusing look at life in the now obsolete Army Catering Corps, as seen through the eyes of someone who joined in what was, the very different world of 1977. A young recruit, enduring the bullying NCOs of the basic training era and working through many postings and different experiences, before leaving in 1991 at the rank of sergeant. The book takes the reader to places around the world, including the war torn 1970’s Northern Ireland and allows them a behind the scenes experience of the cookhouses of many different types of units and at each rank up to and including the illustrious cook sergeant.

About the Author:

Pete Stubbs joined the army at the tender age of seventeen and a half, partly to get a trade and partly to appease his parents wrath. The culture shock of the bullying NCOs throughout basic training was added to when he received his first posting to war torn Northern Ireland. Pete grew up within the army, getting married and starting a family whilst at postings around the world. He left the army after fourteen years with the rank of sergeant to become a civilian police officer. His book, Confessions of a Slop Jockey, is a satirical and humorous journey from start to finish of his time in the now obsolete Army Catering Corps.
