I have been harping on to Huw for over 25 years saying I am writing a novel based in Belize during the Cold War era.
Well, I have finally finished it. If you are interested, you can pre order a copy here:

Yes; very interested. Stand-fast Andy McNab!
Am I right in assuming this work is a novel (fiction) rather than a memoir?
I never made it to Belize "back in the day" ... but was considering retiring there a few years ago. But (largely due to what I have read on the internet), I doubt that move will be made now.
But if we're going to start reminiscing about the Cold War ... maybe I had better start jotting down a few notes (whilst I can still remember them) about how I (and, it must be said, a few others) kept the 3rd Shock Army at bay; not to mention creeping about the misty back-streets of (West) Berlin (John le Carré eat your heart out).
Good luck with the book, John. I shall look out for it.
Meanwhile ... Jolly Green Giant ... or Puma?
It is a work of fiction Geoff, and that is a Puma on the front cover (with me sat on the steps) The corrugated tin Nissen hut in the background was where I lived with 17 other guys from the General Engineering Flight. 😀
