Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Major Harold William "Bill" Tilman, CBE, DSO, MC and Bar (14 February 1898-1977) was an English mountaineer and explorer, renowned for his Himalayan climbs and sailing voyages. Tilman was born on 14 February 1898 in Wallasey in Cheshire, the son of a well-to-do sugar merchant and educated at Berkhamsted Boys school. At the age of 18, Tilman was commissioned into the Royal Field Artillery and fought in the First World War, including the Battle of the Somme, and was twice awarded the Military Cross for bravery. His climbing career, however, began with his acquaintance with Eric Shipton in Kenya, East Africa, where they were both coffee growers.show more
