Product Description

About the Author

John Ivelaw-Chapman was educated at Cheltenham College. National Service in the RAF extended to an eighteen year commission. During this time he served as a pilot in Germany, Cyprus, East Africa, Aden and Malaysia. On retirement from the service, he worked as an antique dealer, auctioneer and occasional contributor to magazines and newspapers. His first book, High Endeavour (Leo Cooper) was compiled from his father's personal archive which documented an adventurous military life from Royal Flying Corps subaltern to vice-chief of air Staff in the nuclear-equipped Royal Air Force. He had always had an interest in the history of World War One and this interest became an obsession with the chance discovery of `The Collected Issues of the Wipers Times' and The Riddles of Wipers resulted. John Ivelaw-Chapman passed away in 2004.

Great book with moving narrative but the all-important extracts from Wipers Times very difficult to decipher on my Kindle. Such a shame!

Amongst all the confusion over WW1, this is an interesting perspective from those involved and spoken in true British spirit.
