All the Raj

 

Sir, – You could not be more wrong about the late Brig William Magan, who died at the age of 101 in 2010 (Property, July 13th). Far from displaying a “penchant for secrecy”, late in his retirement he published no less than three volumes of beautifully written, highly personal and moving memoirs, An Irish Boyhood, Soldier of the Raj and Middle Eastern Approaches. – Yours, etc,
