William Lindon-Travers was an English actor, screenwriter, director and an animal rights activist, known professionally as Bill Travers. Travers was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, the son of Florence and William Halton Lindon-Travers. He and his sister Linden both became actors. Travers enlisted in the British forces at eighteen, a few months after the outbreak of World War Two, and was sent to India. Within a year he had advanced to the rank of Major. He also served in the 9th Gurkha Rifles in Burma, attached to General Wingate's staff, during which service he came to know John Masters. When stricken by malaria he was left behind on a native village. In order to avoid capture he disguised himself as a Chinese national, walked hundreds of miles through jungle territory until he reached an allied position, parachuted into Malaya, and worked there with the resistance forces until the end of the war
