Hilarious misadventures of a child in the twilight of the British Raj, in Ceylon.

Long ago, when Britain ruled the world, one far fortess dreads a  problem more vexing than militant Japan.

The Colonel trembles in his rage, the nuns pray, while innocent Wee Charlie strives to understand the weird world of adults.

Says Charlie: "There's nothing harder to learn than people."


Excerpt

BRAT OVERBOARD (book's opening):

Smaller than a kitbag and only four years, the youngest in that army, Charlie watched the soldiers come aboard: pith helmets, khaki shorts, puttees, boots, bolt-action rifles.
He knew that the din of embarkation at Southampton Docks would take him to a faraway place where, according to Mum, the Empire's warriors would defend a far-flung outpost. He little suspected, nor could anyone imagine, perish the thought, that he would be a more immediate problem than militant Japan.
