Admin HistoryLittle is known of the author, Frank G Woodhams. According to the letter from Herbert Addison to Woodhams, the two of them had spent some considerable time in the Middle East, and in Egypt in particular, presumably as part of the British civil service there before the War (as Addison refers to the 'provinces'). Woodhams was in America in 1953 (Downers Grove, Illinois) and retired to Paignton, where he was resident in 1973-1975.
