One of my favorite travel books is First Overland, written by Tim Slessor and published in 1957. It chronicles the 1955 Oxford & Cambridge Far Eastern Expedition from London to Singapore. One member of the expedition, Antony Barrington-Brown (known as BB), was the expedition's photographer and filmmaker. Last month, both BB and his wife, Althea, were killed in a car accident near their home in Wiltshire, England.
Below is a link to Graeme Aldous' tribute to BB and his wife via his First Overland Newsletter (note, current newsletter content will change so you may need to view his archived newsletters if you read this post late). Graeme created an excellent DVD documentary of the First Overland story. His tribute offers some insight into the lives of BB and Althea.
Godspeed BB and Althea.
