About the Book
The true (well mostly) life story of a man born at the end of the 19th century, raise in a rural Victorian village and surviving two World Wars.
Told in his own words and translated from his original hand-written memoirs by two generations of his blood line.
Mike & Jacqui were married in 1999 having both lost their previous marital partners. This coincided with the time that their children left home and the dog ran away. This meant that they had the time and disposable income to do things that they had never managed when younger. Travel was one of these things. Having only travelled as far as Europe in earlier days, the world suddenly beckoned. After a honeymoon in Thailand, the travel-bug bit and now they are trying to make up for lost time. Having been caught up in the Asian tsunami of 2004, the next two years holidays were spent working as volunteers for a month at a time, back in Thailand.
