The Last Post

Set in the mid-Sixties in the shimmering heat of Aden, Yemen, The Last Post centres on a unit of Royal Military Police officers and their families. Their job is two-fold: half soldiers and half policemen who face constant insurgency and threat. Danger is everywhere. Hand grenades, mines and sniper attacks are a constant threat.

As the insurgency takes a real hold and casualties mount it becomes harder for everyone not to start to ask the big questions. What are we doing here? Is it right? As the old established order of the Fifties comes apart who will survive and who will flounder?
