Inhaltsangabe zu "The Indiaman"
Among his pioneer passengers that year was the author of this book, Peter Moss, who took photographs, drew sketches and compiled a diary of the journey that forms the substance of this book. But Peter, aged 22 at the time, did not end his wanderlust at Calcutta. He travelled on by sea to Malaya, where he took up an appointment as a journalist with the Malay Mail, reporting on the last years of the Malayan Emergency. From Malaya Peter moved to Hong Kong, where he became a civil servant working in the Hong Kong Government’s Information Services Department, embarking on a 28-year career that ended with him heading its Publicity Division and being awarded an M.B.E.
Peter has since authored more than twenty books, including travelogues, histories, novels and three volumes of autobiography.
