Boy's Own epic
Friday 24 November 1995
Captain John Warburton Lee was well- qualified as an expedition leader. Commissioned in 1983 into the Welsh Guards, he served in Northern Ireland, Germany, Canada and Belize. He always saw himself first and foremost a soldier, but exploited to the full his leadership skills to satisfy an inherent wanderlust. Expeditions to Norway, Austria, Mexico and throughout Africa led to his first book and exhibition, Roof of Africa, which he wrote and photographed himself. And now he has allowed the Indiana Jones streak to take over; after the Roof of the Americas expedition, he resigned from the army to pursue a career as a photographer and write - and, no doubt, more action-packed adventures.
