Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated brown and white card covers, lettered in black and white. "Thousands of ex-servicemen of the Second World War remember it as the port where their battered ships refitted and they themselves spent a hectic leave. To millions it means the defence agreement made in 1955 between the British and South African governments, the effects of which are still being hotly debated. To Colin Winter it means the multiracial community of Cape Coloureds, Africans, and Europeans, now broken up by "separate development", among which he lived and worked until 1964. This book emerges from his acute observation of the people of Simonstown and his deep affection for them. His unpretentious andhumorous stories capture the everyday human realities of living in South A frica." (from the back cover).
