The Corsair Journals
“We are safely out of the boat. How fortunate that we should have selected this place, this isolated white elephant among mere and hollow fields of blossom, to make our unscheduled descent”. Against a backdrop of impending war, Mervyn Dukes and Veronica Berry make a lavish and fragile journey across an achingly beautiful paradise. Their story is told through the elegant diary of one, and the glittering young eyes of the other. Inspired by the journeys of the Imperial Airways Empire Boats of the 1930’s, The Corsair Journals tells the story of one of these astonishing machines, and how her ill-fated flight across Africa touched the lives of all who knew her.
