Guy Browning's favourite reading material in the "small room" has always been Philip's School Atlas, hence he decided that his memoirs should also be the story of his best-loved maps.
These cartographic-based gems range from early days in Chipping Norton, to memories of his father's brief posting to El Salvador.
A humorist with a gift for absurdity, Browning's account will bring a smile to the face of anyone born in the Sixties, especially those familiar with "Long Marches" – family rambles involving short-cuts across M.O.D. Danger Areas.
The funniest chapter recounts his courtship of a girl and a series of disastrous encounters with her father.
