A Stroll Down Piccadilly
The Reflections of a British Royal Marine
A Stroll Down Piccadilly is a biographical narrative style memoir of James Headley Harris.
Jim and his best friend Harry learned about the world and tried to adjust to the bombings, death, and rationings of the World War ll era in Birmingham, England. When they were of age, they both signed up for service, but were placed in different regiments. Jims' experience in the Royal Marines includes extensive training and his service aboard two ships; thus the trials and tribulations of navy life, making boys into men.
Lest we forget...
Michael Harris wrote “A Stroll Down Piccadilly” in honor of his older brother James, who served his country in the Royal Marines during World War ll. Michael was a well-seasoned traveler and enjoyed Italy the most and learnt the language quite well. He was educated at Oxford University and graduated in Theology. He lived in Stratford-Upon-Avon where he retired and lived with his wife Kathy until his passing.
Sharon Oxley found this manuscript among her father’s possessions after his passing and believes it was his contention of publishing the manuscript. It is with great pride that she publish it in his name.
