PRLog - April 20, 2012 - Tom Edwards loved the era in which he was born. Foul language was never used in the home or in company. Women wore dresses and were modest and chaste. Men were courteous and manly. A child could roam without fear and mothers stayed home to look after their family. People lived closer together and had time to make friends. Most people were poor, but were rich in friendships and family experiences.
This is the story of Tom’s eventful life. Now 82, the author relates his life and times. He survived the Great Depression, was a Royal Navy apprentice in World War II, lived in many parts of Africa, served in an anti-terrorist unit and sailed around the world for four years in a 30-foot boat. He was chased by pirates off the coast of Columbia and was shipwrecked off the coast of New Zealand in a hurricane.
Throughout his exciting memoir Tom, Tom Edwards’ words shine with humour and wit. He recalls Edward the Eighth’s abdication speech verbatim, but recent memories don’t have quite as much clarity. But one thing is for certain: His life has been an exciting journey.
