Book To Help Raise Money To Fight Breast Cancer

In Memory Of Charmaine Maeer 
In memory of 2013 Charmaine Mary Nona Maeer who was diagnosed with breast cancer at the young age of 30 after finding a lump and passed away on the 12 July 2013. All profits from the sale of this book will go to breast cancer charities. 

A former Midland soldier claims she begged a colleague to shoot her after she was gang-raped at a Midland barracks in 1997. 

Charmaine Maeer, now deceased, says that she was beaten and repeatedly raped during just 10 days service as a soldier at Whittington Barracks in Lichfield, Staffordshire, England.


Along with around 12 other girls, I was shown to my dormitory, where I started to unpack. As I nipped to the loo, I noticed one of the male soldiers following me. 

"Where are you going?" he barked. 

'To the toilet," I replied timidly. I hadn't even got through the door when he pounced and I went crashing to the tiled floor. He kicked and punched me then started to pull off my clothes. In my terror and confusion, I thought that I must have broken the rules somehow. 

"I'm sorry, I'm so sorry," I yelled, trying to wriggle free of his clutches. I was no match for him.

He raped me, I limped back to the dormitory in a daze. One thing I knew, however: this had to be reported. I found a woman - for legal reasons I can't identify her - and, sobbing, told her everything. "I'll see what I can do," she said reassuringly.

All afternoon I waited for her to come back, for someone to summon me; but no one did. At 10.30pm, I sat looking through the window at the barbed wire and guard dogs and terror crept over me. I was trapped.
