The autobiography of Mike Hall, who won 42 rugby caps for Wales. He made his debut against New Zealand in 1988 and captained his country at the 1995 World Cup. In an eventful club career he played for Maesteg, Bridgend, Cambridge University, and Cardiff, captaining the Arms Park club for five seasons. He then moved into the property business and ended up playing a crucial part in the development of the Cardiff City Stadium, becoming a director of Cardiff City Football Club and working through, arguably, the most pivotal period of the Bluebirds history, alongside Sam Hammam, Peter Ridsdale, and current Malaysian owner Vincent Tan.

-

Major Mike Hall joined the Coldstream Guards as a boy drummer in 1960 at the age of fifteen years. After years of ceremonial duties and active service in the United Kingdom and overseas, he became the Senior Drum Major of the Regiment. Passionate about military music, Mike has written training manuals for the Army, co-authored the Drummers' Handbook, composed many musical scores culminating in the production of two CDs of Flute and Drum arrangements. With his wealth of knowledge and experience, Mike has been requested to give a series of lectures for student band masters at Kneller Hall on the subject of writing and arranging for Corps of Drums. In retirement, Mike continues to maintain strong links with The Corps of Drums Society in the role of Training Development Officer.
