An autobiography by Capt Edward Parsons.

Captain Parsons was born in 1900. A rather delicate child, with spinal curvature. This story tells how he succeeded in his efforts to join the Royal Marines during the 1914-18 war and of the frustrations and hardships he endured during those early days. It also relates adventures in Turkey, the South Seas, the Defence of Britain, the Invasions of Sicily and Normandy, during a career of nearly 36 years with the Colours, with Commissions in the Royal Marines and the New Zealand Regular Force on the way. He became an enthusiastic cricketer, coach and administrator. He also became well known in the catering world as an adviser, judge, examiner and writer. He is well known in New Zealand as an owner, trainer and breeder of racehorses.
