The Sound of Distant Drums

The Heroes of this book are the veterans and their families whose stories span 140+ years in protecting our country. Their stories are history, filled with the mundane events of service life, the fear of combat, the horror that front line infantrymen faced, the tension that air crews and pilots faced, the vastness of the Pacific that confronted sailors, the strain on the mind and bodies of Prisoners of War, and humor viewed through the eyes of the veterans. As you read their stories listen to the voices of these veterans and picture in your mind an aging color guard from a local veteran’s post; visualize them marching into the mist, to the sound of distant drums and the muted bugle’s call, along with the men and women who have gone before. There are no large marble memorials to these individual veterans; their monument is a free United States. I am left with one thought about the experience of speaking with these people; God bless the United States of America and all who serve her.

The story centers on two cousins, Dicky and Emmeline Lestrange, who are marooned with a galley cook on an island in the South Pacific following a shipwreck. The galley cook, Paddy Button, assumes responsibility for the children and teaches them how to survive. Two-and-a-half years after the shipwreck, Paddy died following a drinking binge. The children survive on their resourcefulness and the bounty of their remote paradise. They live in a hut and spend their days fishing, swimming, diving for pearls and exploring the island. As the years pass, Dicky and Emmeline grow into physically mature young adults and begin to fall in love. As they deal with their newfound emotions, Dicky's father Arthur believes the two are still alive and he is determined to find them. "The Garden of God" is a sequel to The Blue Lagoon and it picks up precisely where it left off, with Arthur Lestrange in the ship Raratonga discovering his son Dicky and niece Emmeline with their own child, lying in their fishing boat which has drifted out to sea. It turns out that Dicky and Emmeline died and the child is drowsy but alive and is picked up by the sailors. Arthur has a dream-vision of the pair; they ask him to come to Palm Tree, the island where they lived, and promise he will see them again. Arthur takes the child, which gets the nickname Dick M, and takes his ship to Palm Tree, where he plans to stay with Dick M and Kearney, a volunteer from the crew who grows fond of Dick. The rest of the crew leave with a promise to return the next year, but they get swallowed up in a storm out at sea, and the trio stays stuck on the island.

In his mid-twenties at the outbreak of World War Two, Maurice Willoughby was among the last generation of Army officers to be born and brought up into colonial life in India and England. Blessed with a photographic memory, he brings the reality of life to every page of his memoirs, whether it be as a child speaking Urdu as well as English, an adolescent facing the rigours of public school life, a young man at Sandhurst, or a commissioned officer serving abroad in the Peacetime Army. Nothing is omitted, including the seamier side of school and barracks life, but the author pays tribute to the genuine high-mindedness that inspired generations of men to devote their lives to military service abroad for their Empire.
