This autobiography by Len Rush traces his life from childhood to his appointment by the Queen as her Royal Lofts Manager. As a child, he remembers being busy pig-keeping, crow-scaring and riding giant horses that did the work of tractors on a farm where both his parents were employed in the Norfolk countryside which today exists as a suburb of Kings Lynn. He recalls the events which led to his royal appointment, when he received a letter from the Queen's agent at Sandringham in 1960 and was astonished to learn that the Queen knew of his reputation as a pigeon fancier and wished to appoint him as her Royal Lofts Manager. He kept the birds in lofts in his back garden and tells of the royal visits he had every year. This is a story written with the enthusiasm that made him so successful at his favourite occupation.
