This book was born of a meeting nearly forty years ago between the author and journalist Ian Skidmore and Lord Langford of Bodrhyddan Hall, Dyserth, North Wales.
Written in the third person, Lord Langford being the "Rowley" of the story, it tells of Geoffrey Rowley-Conwy's (Lord Langford's / "Rowley's") escape from the Japanese invasion of Singapore and Percival's surrender in 1942.
Langford and his group's escape using a small sailing junk, and his eventful journey to Ceylon make for a gripping tale.
