An Indian Air Force Officer writes about his childhood, life in Air Force, his posting to UK as an Assistant Attaché during the purchase of the English Electric Canberra Bomber and The Sepecat Jaguar – Anglo -french ground attack aircraft, liasoning with arms companies for spares, assignment with British Royalty during their visit to India in 1961, borrowing a canister of shaving foam from an American for a Russian General who does not shave himself, and other quaint idiosyncrasies of individuals and institutions, both in India and UK. There are humorous descriptions of antics of Indian politicians and bureaucrats of the time. A full chapter has been devoted to describe his duties as an Equerry-In-Waiting for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philips, the Duke of Edinburgh during their state Visit to India in January – March 1961. The book contains rare photographs of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and H.R.H. The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh , during their visit to India in 1961.
