9780080363967: Bothy to Big Ben: An Autobiography

Ben Coutts has packed much more into his 80-plus years than most mortals. Before the war he worked as a ponyman in Perthshire and rural Sussex. Once he had joined up, his wartime experiences were hilarious and tragic by turns. He fought in Africa, was seriously wounded in Tobruk, torpedoed on his trip home in the Laconia, bombed, and when he had made it to the UK, began a long recovery after a series of painful operations. He went on to become a farm-manager in the Highlands, a sheep farmer, a leading stock breeder, show judge and broadcaster, and even a would-be politician.
