Grenadiers feature in new best-seller Phoenix Squadron

11 September 2009

Rowland White, best selling author of Vulcan 607, has recently written another gripping military history, this time about HMS Ark Royal and her intervention in British Honduras in 1972. The Grenadier Guards, who were the resident infantry company at the time of the crisis, feature heavily.

Working closely with  Major Bob Woodfield in London, White subsequently interviewed both Colonel Richard Besly and Colonel Richard Corkran about their memories of what was a fascinating, relatively unknown episode in the history of the Grenadier Guards.
