"Living in Hong Kong as a child from 1929, where her father was Superintendent of Hong Kong Airfield and Aeronautical Advisor to the Hong Kong Government, June Ombler has lived her life in interesting times - and managed to keep records and photographs from most of it. She was evacuated from war zones in Asia both during and after WWII, learned what life was like on a New Zealand farm and then travelled to live in East Africa, where she spent over 20 years. There she faced the threats of the Mau Mau rebellion, and the ongoing political unrest in Kenya and later Uganda, under Idi Amin. During this time she met some fascinating and famous people, explored the forests of East Africa while hunting for orchids, raised her family and provided invaluable support for the Kenya Red Cross Society." - from blurb on rear cover.
