Click to zoom From Cockney to Colonial (and Back Again) The Memoirs of Alan Clifton pocket and trade book cover

"In September 1939, at the outbreak of the Second World War, millions of English citizens—mostly children—were evacuated from larger towns and cities in anticipation of enemy air raids. I was one of them."

Thus begins an extraordinary tale of a boy who suddenly finds himself surrounded by strangers, thousands of miles from home, amid the turmoil and confusion of World War Two. Taking snakes, warrior ants and crocodiles in stride, Alan Clifton steps from the familiar streets of downtown London into the wilds of Northern Rhodesia.

An unforgettable coming-of-age story destined to find a warm place in every reader's heart.
