Synopsis: "After the success of his first bawdy and sentimental book of memoirs Puttees And A Pinstripe, about his wartime childhood, teen years, and National Service in Korea and Gibraltar, in All Wind And Pips rambunctious author Mike George continues the hysterical account of the often absurd events that have steered his life's arguably unconventional path thus far. Covering the years between his 21st and 40th birthdays, when he had his best head of steam and was performing well, it recounts further civilian and army adventures, mishaps and professional setbacks galore in the author's usual preposterous fashion. Twice widowed, currently he lives with his (lady) partner in Eastbourne, gamely but vainly trying to stave off senility and prolapsed kneecaps, whilst croaking off-key grand opera in the bath, awash on a pain numbing sea of export strength Plymouth gin.
