Second Lieutenant Stewart Bainbridge of 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards and Private Barry Brown of 2nd Battalion, Parachute Regiment meet for the first time in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham after they each suffered horrific injuries while serving their Queen and Country. The two men could not be more different from each other in just about every way, but in spite of that they form an unlikely friendship that will last a lifetime. They help each other come to terms with life after the armed forces and they decide to move to Pattaya in Thailand to open up a bar and start a new life: What could possibly go wrong!
This is a story about two extraordinary men on an incredible journey in life. It is a story that will make you laugh and make you cry, but most of all it’s a story of triumph over adversity and the amazing human spirit.
