DOCTOR LARK is the story of Bill Larkworthy, a British-born doctor whose recollections, delightful vignettes and keen observations (medical and otherwise) make this a funny and vivid account of how a medical education provided a passport to the world. In 20 years as a doctor with the RAF in Germany, Cyprus, Malaysia and England, he met and treated Gurkhas, SAS commandos, serving and retired aircrew and an assortment of characters. Head-hunted for Saudi Arabia, he experienced the zenith and nadir of his career - treating the King and the Royal Family and being thrown in jail on trumped up charges. Moving to the Persian Gulf, he established a clinic where his patients included the celebrated Arabian explorer Sir Wilfred Thesiger among the many memorable characters whose foibles and fantasies, frailties and strengths bring these pages alive.
