Hi My Dad was a War Correspondant for the BBC and came here in the years 44-45. He wrote lots of letters back to my mum, which I kept.
He sailed on the Gambia. He then stayed at the Gloucester Hotel. Then Edward Ward of the BBC asked him to go down the Yangtse with him to take photos for a book (Chinese Crackers byy Edward Ward) .of which I have a copy.
There is not a lot of interesting content to this website in his letters as they are mainly about me (born 1940) and what he was buying and sending for us) He used an interesting code for where he was at the time and his plans , it involved Crossword type clues for the places involved that only Mum would know. Anyway , here he is the handsome devil!
Regards to all, Ren
