Table of Contents
A British Colonial and ex-Gordon Highlander, Chris Ash has spent much of his life in Africa, usually drilling for oil in the least pleasant places. Blessed (cursed?) with a love of adventure, when he was 24, Chris drove his Land Rover from London to Cape Town and decided to stay. His passion for Victorian history was sparked by watching 'Zulu' and 'Breaker Morrant' as a child, and stoked by a drunken argument with an irate Afrikaner in Pietersburg.
