In April, 1939, two young lads from Streatham, South London, 19 year-old Eric Wiseman and his mate, 18 year-old Kenneth Raper, with 70 quid between them, embark on a five-year cycling tour of the world!

Leaving behind their ho-hum 30/ a week jobs as clerks, they hope to be able to earn a bit of dosh in the Persian oil fields, with India, Australia and America hopefully to follow!

I do hope nothing happens to interfere with their voyage of discovery!

Here's to seeing our mums again in 1944!
