Moving On free pdf Sir Rupert Grayson died in 1991 still looking forward, though in his 94 years he had experienced more incidents than imaginable. Born into the wealthy Liverpool shipbuilding family of Sir Henry Grayson, Rupert, leaving Harrow, joined the Irish Guards and was wounded in WWI by the shell that killed Rudyard Kipling's son, John. He married twice, but only for a brief period of time. He roamed the world as a seafarer, author, talent scout, king's messenger, eccentric, romantic, epicure, wit, and friend of the colourful, gifted and famous. He wrote 16 thriller novels, was made a Knight of the Holy Sepulchre by the Pope, and dodged death from a drugged-up army officer on the Moscow-Leningrad Express. He jumped ship as a seaman in New York, suspected of murdering the captain, travelled the world carrying secret documents to British embassies, and encountered the traitor-spy Kim Philby. He devised a cocktail with Scott Fitzgerald in Paris one boozy night, and discovered verses by Noel Coward in a remote guest house in Peru. His life, oiled by charm, threads through a string of enchanting interludes. He claimed to have dedicated himself 'unselfishly and wholeheartedly to extracting as much pleasure from life as it has to offer' - a pleasure to be shared. Moving On is the story of his life, written by Australian journalist and widely travelled Bob Scholfield. He met Sir Rupert Grayson when they were both living in Spain, and he completed Rupert's story in the last year of his life. Sir Rupert Grayson's unique and amusing life experiences and adventures are told in the visual style of a film. Moving On will appeal to fans of biographies.
