Roving Commission by Kel (John) Palmer iUniverse Books ISBN 978-0-595-39189-9. I have just finished John Palmer’s excellent book. Many of our readers will remember John in his Racal days promoting ASTOR in particular. This book is written from the heart and is certainly the first to give graphic details of MoD contract negotiations! Like all Mancuninas, John hols no prisoners, but he has been clever enough not to name his most despised colleagues and enemies, some of whom, if one is in the know, can be identified! A great read, well done John, we wish you and Rosemarie a very happy retirement.
