“As students we all used to frequent a friendly pub in Hounslow called the Iron Bridge, where Keith, the landlady’s son would regale us with his ‘true stories’. It was worth it for the free drinks Keith would put your way, let alone the entertainment value.
Keith was undersized, skinny and had hair like Billy Whizz, and one of his regular bits of bullshit was about his life when he joined the Marines, and how he got thrown out of the Green Berets for being ‘too hard’. But if you questioned him about this he would say he ‘couldn’t talk about it’ because of the Official Secrets Act.
Mind you, this didn’t stop him telling us about the time he went on holiday to Spain and ended up in a gun battle around the swimming pool. He had to be evacuated by helicopter by Special Forces.
I’d advise you not to be too specific on your website about Keith as he was WELL HARD and he might ‘come round with a machete and do you all over.”
