Reader's note

This wonderful book will add a splash of colour to your library! Cecil Beaton was a famous British photographer in the 1940s, and he was sent to many places across the globe for different assignments. He wrote about all of his many adventures in several books, this being just one of them. The first chapter is called 'Departure' - Departure before daylight. Paddington Station was dark, misty and bitterly cold. A group of army officers, some with red tabs, and a few rather seedy looking civilians, assembled in the reserved compartment which would take us to our transport plane...There were patches of snow on the ground. As they huddled around a sulky stove, sailors, who know the North Sea, said they had never experienced such weather. The pilots were joking among themselves: 'I haven't been so cold since I spent New Year's Eve in jug!' - full of great British wit, this book makes a fine addition to any collection.
