Queen and Country

by Finn Maedan

If you're looking for an expose into the inner secrets of the Intelligence Services this isn't it. If you're looking for the twisting plot of a new Bond film this isn't it. My name is Finn Maedan and this is my story.In the autumn of 1982 at the age of 17 and at the height of the Cold War I joined a training scheme at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. Following two years in The Park training school I spent the next 11 years travelling the world as a member of the ultra secret Operational Security Department.

by Jonquil Graham

Remember those long-ago days of fatty Sunday roasts, junket, climbing mulberry trees, hula hoops, mini-skirts, surfing and rock ‘n’ roll?

When the Strathern family moved to the coastal Sydney suburb of Collaroy,the neighbours feared the family of five and their dog in underpants would lower the tone on Pittwater Road.

Whether they did or not is for you to decide as Jonquil Graham takes you on a return journey to childhood and teenage years that included sea voyages, modelling assignments, making a movie, Contiki trips, doing t...

He is said to have killed somewhere between 40,000 and 100,000 people during his crusade to stop the Ottoman Empire from expanding into eastern Europe.
