Seldom has anyone packed so much adventure into a life as Gillian Angrave.
Earthquakes; typhoons; civil uprisings; being held at gunpoint in Guatemala; playing golf with Prince Andrew; taking the helm of a ship in the Pacific; fighting a cobra with a nine-iron; on the set of “Licence to Kill” with James Bond; chatting to Her Majesty The Queen; staying at the Hotel Castel Dracula in Romania; dining with Placido Domingo and captains of industry; globe-trotting from the Equator to Antarctic, from Cape Town to Corregidor, from Tonga to Texas – Gillian’s thirst for adventure never ends.
All this and more is chronicled in her new book, “From Oceans to Embassies”, where she recounts her experiences as Woman Assistant Purser with P & O’s CANBERRA and ORIANA, and during her second career as Ambassador’s PA working in British Embassies around the world for Her Majesty’s Diplomatic Service.
She keeps you turning the pages to see what could possibly happen next.
