Light and Life in the Middle Hills

Lt Col (Ret'd) Johnny Fenn, ex QOGLR and now professional photographer, has had his new book 'Light and Life in the Middle Hills' published. It was launched in the Victory Services Club London on 25 April 2016, exactly one year after the first of the massive earthquakes which devasted Nepal, with Joanna Lumley and Johnny signing copies for those of us lucky enough to be present.

The stunning images in the book were taken when Johnny was serving in Nepal and since. It includes photographs taken after the earthquake. This beautiful visual record of Nepal today is highly recommended. It is published by Uniform Press and is available from Amazon and other top book sellers.

A portion of the proceeds of the sales will go to the Gurkha Welfare Trust.
