Spanish Armada

Though the great Armada in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I is alluded to in both SARUM and LONDON, it becomes the principal action in 'The Armada Tree' chapter of THE FOREST. The story of the wreck of a Spanish galleon full of bullion near Hurst Castle in the Forest is based upon local evidence.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
Hard to believe, but this month of April is the 50th anniversary of the 'official' break-up of the Beatles. This author was a very timid young student at Cambridge then. But the far more worldly and talented guy who had the room across the corridor from me had a lovely girlfriend who worked for John Lennon; and one day they scooped me up and took me to Lennon's house at Ascot. The white house with the white piano. Lennon himself wasn't there, but all the same . . . Fifty years later, that day is still so vivid
