'A game of soldiers in the rain. Dead cushy. It is the excitement that sends you to sleep. Plod on yards that seem like miles following fifty tons of grumble and stink over the Welsh countryside. And the rain pelts down and the night gets blacker, and you thank your lucky stars you're riding, not walking. A Centurion tank is no respecter of living gristle. When a crash comes, you don't have time to scream out your name and number before it wraps you around the sprocket.'
