  • Keep Your Head Down

    I thoroughly enjoyed every sentence in this book. It was, to me, Rey much like having a personal conversation with the author. I was delighted with his sense of humour, seldom,if ever, taking himself too seriously, yet not being a joker or a clown. I think everyone should read this book. It is beautifully crafted, carefully worded, and most importantly provides an insight that few are privileged to experience. It took a special person to write this book. Thank you. I arrived in AFG 4 months after Mr. Mullins left. I was based out of Kabul as the Senior Enlisted Advisor to the ANP. I unwittingly took a very similar approach to Mr. Mullins, particularly in regards to treating everyone, Coalition, Military, civilian, Afghan old ( he claimed to be over 100) to a young girl of five who took me by the hand and guided me down Chicken Street, with her male school mates pressing close behind us, with respect. This worked when I was with the police, and also happened to be the way I was raised. I travelled the country by air, armoured and soft skinned vehicles. Often in the latter I didn’t wear armour and just tried to blend in. I did back to back tours, worked with the best group of people I’d ever deployed with, learned a tremendous amount about myself and others, and generally enjoyed myself thoroughly, it was the culmination of my Military career, over 40 years of Regular and Reserve Forces Service. The Army says I’m broken now, and have put me out to pasture. But I still get e-mail messages from Afghan and coalition friends I made there, and would go back in a heartbeat, although I left in 2012. Perhaps that’s why I enjoyed this book so much, it took me “home”.)

    Thanks for your feedback!
