Overview

This is a tale of a life few understand today: the human cost of Empire, where families were torn apart - a father seen once every four years - growing up in the Thirties, a time much talked and written about by those who never knew it; a strange Oxford; the war at its most savage against an enemy like no other. And then communicating to a generation that knew not these things the values we had fought for.

It is the story of one who found a faith and who after a life longer than most believed others should know about it.

Over these years the East followed the author until he said goodbye to it in a special way.

A tale of struggle, but of much fun and a humour that lights up its pages .

You will discover after reading this book that these years have been worth recalling.
