At the end of the War he stayed on with the Royal Army Medical Corps until he retired forty years later as a Brigadier.Through amusing observation and anecdote, Oram gives a highly personal insider’s account of life as one of the millions of individuals who chose a life in service during the rise and demise of the British Empire, and through two World Wars. Constantly on the move, facing new challenges, he brings alive those turbulent decades, from the 1890s to the 1950s, that shaped our own world.
