An Englishman is plucked from his native land at a young age and sent to the USA by his parents.

An Englishman is plucked from his native land at a young age and sent to the USA by his parents. He transferred to a world which he had previously only dreamt of. With his family he was bombed out during the 1939-1945 war and was brought up in Reading, Berkshire. He would eventually find out that his earlier years had not really prepared him for the wide, new world he was thrust into. His arrival in the United States of America filled him awe and much trepidation. This happened in the 1950s and he had little choice but to make the best of it. He joined the American Air Force and this action was to set him on a path which would have a profound effect on his later life. In the service of Uncle Sam he was sent back to England for overseas duty. Love interests are in abundance and what started out as a blissful 'chocolate factory' experience would soon develop into heart wrenching events. Later he would use some of his experiences in the United States Air Force and the USA to his advantage when later he was pitched into the exciting world of Night Clubs and later still the night life of Amsterdam. Hank Williams songs are used to illustrate and set some of the scenes.
