In 1949, as a young army Captain, Michael was fighting in Malaya, during the Emergency. He knew and loved the jungle and, in his late sixties, he wrote the story in this collection. It is the only one he ever wrote.
Successive postings took him to Hong Kong, Germany and again to Singapore from 1962 to 1965 during Confrontation.
After the Army, Michael became a senior executive in the NHS and subsequently (with Crown Agents) took his expertise to both Brunei and Qatar to commission prestigious modern hospitals for both governments.
He retired to Spain in 1989 and joined the Jávea Computer Club which, under his Presidency, grew from 40 to over 500 members.
He was also Chairman of the local Conservative Association for several years. www.mawgriffin.com p206
