"A joint authorship often conceals a junior partner, who, having tagged along and done some of the donkey work, perhaps with a typewriter, can hardly be left out. Nothing could be more untrue of the contents of this book. This is a husband-and-wife combination in which, like two sportsmen out with guns, the proprietary rights of a certain bird have been observed but the bag at the end of the day is pooled." A beautiful photo-book with charming text. John Stericker had been interned in Stanley Camp during WW2.
