Vivien Roworth was born in Devon in 1941. Convent, college and university educated, a teacher of the deaf and of children with special needs, she spent some years as a hearing aid technician. Her stepfather, a royal Marine bandsman, cultivated her interest in all things military. She has three sons, has written two books of poems and is a dedicated arboriculturist. In her first book, she follows the Georgian drum behind Serjeant Major William Roworth, of the 44th Regiment of Foot, across the Low Countries, the Atlantic and the West Indies during the lowest years in the British Army’s reputation.
