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.
How he survived the Railway I will never know . Died on this day in December 1969 aged 58
This is not a story about battles, but a story of the human spirit against adversity and is a story worth preserving.
It was last published in the 1970s and I’m again glad that Endeavour Press reprinted it in this digital edition.
