His love affair with the islands off Britain's coast was born, perhaps, as he set sail for Singapore during his army days. Far removed from his bestseller, The Virgin Soldiers, this edition of Some Lovely Islands (first published in 1968 and revised in 1982) charts a shorter but equally unforgettable journey...  2/6

This was where he found his island- hopping legs, where he discovered what it was to be on "a true island, not one of those sticky palm-tree places". Island hopping then became a way of life for the writer.  3/6 Sport On 4 Facts C4 Daily Bookworld
