Hi everyone, I'm Christopher Dawber, born into a military family in 1953, I have had a hectic life right from the outset. My Father was in the RAF and Mother was a nurse and as such I had a very disciplined upbringing.
My Father wishing to "make a man of me" entered me into a military style boarding school called the Indefatigable in Anglesey from the young age of fourteen.
Joining the Merchant Navy as a deck boy, times were harsh, health and safety did not exist and I got into all sorts of adventures.
Becoming a Psychiatric nurse seemed a good career move but after a while I longed for the adventure of the sea once more.
The Royal Navy and several trades saw me as a Radio Operator, Aircrew, which held all sorts of dangers and finally, a Military Policeman with many humourous incidents on the way.
None of it was what I really wanted to do but I am glad I did it, since it has given me something to write about, a life lived to the full I regret none of it.
Now as a Window Cleaner, I am as happy as I have ever been and felt that I had something to offer in the way of a book to give others the benefit of my experiences.
Married for 36 years to a Maltese wife and having one son of 21, I now live in Durham in the United Kingdom.
