And so that the troops themselves will benefit from the popularity of these amiable heroes, the prodeeds will go to the Army Welfare Services fund, for expenditure on special welfare objects.NB: The book is written under the pseudonym Jon but due to the difficulty of getting such a name isolated (there are two other Jon authors) I have registered the book under his real name with the Jon thus [Jon].
