About the Book

This is a series of anecdotes from my misspent youth as I went over to the dark side and got involved with motorcycles. If you are into motorcycles, planes, cars, and things to do with boats, I have a few stories to tell you. It is an interest in colonial Kenya and New Zealand life as seen in the eyes of a guy from long ago and far away. It has stories from my ninety-seven-year-old dad in Seychelles, his WWII service, his deals with his experiences in the Mau Mau Emergency in Kenya, and him bringing his family to New Zealand in the sixties. In the seventies and eighties, I served my twenty years in the RNZAF, putting down a lot of my mishaps and adventures in an interesting time domestically and overseas.
