MY FATHER’S OWN INDIAN SUMMERS

MY FATHER'S OWN INDIAN SUMMERS

When the Bears heard I was writing a feature for The Lady about my father’s experiences in Simla during the war, they insisted there should be a window dedicated to him.  My father is represented by a little bear, proudly wearing the MBE he was awarded in the 1946 New Year’s Honours List, the Elysium Hill, where he lived and worked, behind him.  Add to that two sari-clad beauties and an assortment of Indian soldiers, elephants and even a camel, and you’re transported back to the Simla of the 1940s.
