|'D for Destruction'
by Tony Williamson
After a series of murders occurs in the 51st Yeomanry, Adam is contacted by General Mongerson of Strategic Command, who asks him to return to service in his old regiment so that he can help track down the killers. The regiment is now under the command of the Territorial Army, and led by the fanatical Colonel Mannering. Adam discovers that Mannering is furious with proposed plans to disband the T.A., and he will stop at nothing to ensure that the scheme is never approved…
