This is a sort of autobiography of my view of the Great War. I suppose I should call it: ‘Interlude 1914-19’. Here has been recorded one man's view of the period, September 1914 to March... More > 1919. It is not literature; it was written line by line as memory carried me back to those extraordinary days, with regular pauses of days and months. I wanted to put down on paper the things I saw and endured and enjoyed, and the thoughts that passed through my mind as, day by day, time moved along its endless groove of boredom, terror, discomfort and good fellowship.

The BBC TV series “True Love” was the catalyst for this tale, portraying various romantic encounters, all set by the Margate seaside. True love has many forms. A passion for cricket can... More > also be a manifestation of love. Yet it is impossible to discuss cricket, with its broad themes, without reflecting on life itself. I have set my story broadly in 1965, when a girl lost her life. At the time, her death meant little to us but such are the vagaries of writing, that the more I researched the subject, the greater I became drawn in. Any discussion on the circumstances surrounding her murder led inevitably to the inclusion of another theme, which I have encountered in life, violence towards women. I still return to Margate regularly and regard it with deep affection. It was in danger of becoming a wasteland. There are those now, some famous, some often unsung, trying to fashion a resurgence. Another form of true love. May their guardian angels help them succeed.< Less
