I have thought about this, but I have to mention my father in law, Mervyn Coelho. He was in the Indian Ordnance Corps and I wrote the Judas Kiss about him and all I said was true. He was haunted by the people he killed until the end of his life. What's more, the end of the meant the end of life as he knew it. He had to leave India with his family and landed up in Glasgow in 1948 with virtually nothing. Both Mervyn and and his wife were like lambs to the slaughter.

I shall always remember him as a very brave man, a man who did the right thing as he saw it and who protected his family no matter what. Finally, as a man who never let life beat him.
