Product Description


"I wonder how national service would go down with the eighteen-year-olds of today? It would have to include girls, of course.”

An honest and brave account of National Service in the 1950s. Brian Robertson spares no detail in his story, from simple 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 Roberston 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 farm-hand ever would. What starts off as an exploration of the ecclectic nature of the army, takes an unexpected twist down the obediance, ruthlessness, and brutality of training and war.
