This website is a narrower (600 pixels wide) clone of my long-running site (960 pixels wide) which continues to be available here. There is now a new wide website here which concentrates on my retirement years (ie 2001 to the present).
The site you are looking at has most of the same stories and images and is designed for hand-held devices.
For those who prefer to read my stories, without images, on eReaders or other small format devices, I have produced a FREE eBook in both Apple (.epub) and Kindle (.mobi) formats . Click here to go to my Downloads page.
All the stories on my websites and in my eBooks are based on my own memories and diaries. I would also like to make clear that I never included any classified material in my diaries. It follows, therefore, that there is no classified information on this website. The 400-plus web pages are in chronological order and there is a ‘continue’ link at the bottom of every page except the final one. The search function (bottom right hand side of the header) is very efficient and works best with single words - but please bear in mind that it can take several seconds to search through 350,000 words.
