About the Author:

Born in 1926, Sir Ronald Waterhouse GBE grew up in a Liberal family in North Wales. Wartime service in the RAF led to study of Law at Cambridge and he was called to the Bar at Middle Temple in 1952. His long and distinguished legal career encompassed a diverse practice as barrister and silk before becoming a High Court judge in 1978. He was married to Lady Sarah Waterhouse and had three children. He died shortly after completing this memoir in 2011 at the age of 85.
