In 1941, 'Little Jimmy' is sent away to an exclusive boarding school, in the hopes he may be selected to become a Naval Officer. At thirteen he is in uniform, but headstrong and over-imaginative by nature, he finds life in The Service suffocating, often leading to his behaving outrageously and he resigns at the age of 21. Disowned and penniless he leaves home, being forced to pit his wits to make a life for himself in the liberated world of the 60's. A chance meeting with a woman on a train alters his life. One adventure follows another, as along the way he encounters such diverse characters as members of the aristocracy, scrap dealers, crooked businessmen, showmen and interior designers, artistic coalminers and even an ingenious butcher's apprentice. All these are to play a part in his establishing a unique and most unusual world-wide business before he is 35.
