Ken Lukowiak

Ken Lukowiak's family were Jehovah's Witnesses. Nevertheless he joined the army and, as a member of the Parachute Regiment, fought in the Falklands War. After the war he was posted to Belize where he smoked an awful lot of marijuana. Sending some of this home led to his dismissal from the army, a prison term and a breakdown. Part of his recovery from this was the writing of A SOLDIER'S SONG which in turn led to a career in journalism.
