Ah yes. The very elusive Mr Gayle Rivers, originally a WOII with the New Zealand Special Air Service Regiment (NZSASR).
He was allegedly
a one time member of 'F' Troop
, 'R' Sqn, 22 Special Air Service, based at the HQ of 21 SAS (R [Artists Rifles]),
Duke of Yorks Barracks, Chelsea.
I too, have had the book for some 20 odd years but then, I also had his second book, The Specialist
which was published a few years later.
The most disturbing thing about Mr Rivers and The Specialist, is his almost uncanny ability to recall certain events in Lebanon, Belgium and Spain
[not to mention France] and the so called deniable missions
undertook for both the US and UK governments.
Not a guy to be messed with, unlike Mitchell Richards, who was a total #!
