TRAVEL WARRANT
by Bernard Fergusson


Over the last century, three generations of Fergussons in succession have furnished a Governor or Governor-General of New Zealand.

Bernard Fergusson, now Lord Ballantrae, found himself, not unwillingly, carried away on the same current. He has already chronicled, in 'The Trumpet in the Hall', some of his travels during his twenty-eight years in the Army.

In 'Travel Warrant' after a rapid survey of the inherited tradition, he recalls some of the other journeys in which he has so happily, or sometimes less happily, found himself involved. These range from eight days in Antarctica, including a visit to the South Pole, to five miserable months 'observing' the Civil War in Nigeria; from witnessing as a journalist the 'troubles' in Algeria in 1959 to a leisurely cruise around the South Pacific as Governor-General of New Zealand in 1964; from seeking traces of his collateral ancestor in Tobago to inadvertently taking part, through ignorance of the local language, in an anti-British demonstration in Dalmatia.

He has recorded these and many other adventures in the home which he established on his marriage while still in the Army, as near possible to the Kilkerran from from which he as so many of his family have set out over the centuries.
