As an naive young man no more that an ordinary working class lad from the streets London, in the spring of 1975 through a series of inexplicable events, accidentally I blundered my way into the intriguing, often secretive, and always dangerous worldMoreAs an naive young man no more that an ordinary working class lad from the streets London, in the spring of 1975 through a series of inexplicable events, accidentally I blundered my way into the intriguing, often secretive, and always dangerous world of captive marine mammals.Wanting somewhere to live rather than a job- armed only with my experience of middle management, a page from the Situations Vacant column, and the optimistic words of “Accommodation provided,” I applied for the position of a Filtration Engineer at the Dolphinarium of Royal Windsor Safari Park, which in keeping with my naivety were two things I knew absolutely nothing about.

With a proven management record, and a great deal of hardly believable blagging, bizarrely I was offered an opportunity of a lifetime to actually manage the parks Dolphinarium.Putting aside my reservations about Ramu a four and half ton killer whale, one with a worldwide reputation of being the most dangerous in captivity, all my misgivings clung to the slim but hopeful phrase of “Training given,” and soon I found myself immersed in world of wonderfully independently minded sea creatures, while living with, and being surrounded by a safari park full of amazing exotic animals, and a host of colourfully insane animal keepers, each of them determined to live life to the full, and in varying degrees equally as insane as I, the start of a roller coaster adventure which would have the power to change me, my life, and the way I thought about this wonderful world.Over time, I had always been amazed to watch tears of laughter roll down the cheeks of my friends, or on hearing their sudden gasps of astonishment, and sometimes maybe to see the sadness reflected in their eyes, as I recalled to them my half forgotten memories of that time.

Not until the luxury of my retirement, along with the continuous badgering and the non stop moaning of the greatest of all my friends, Steven Craig, did I eventually commit pen to paper, all the while constantly being reminded by him that, such stories were far too good to be lost to history, or, that it would be selfish of me not to share them with those that might enjoy reading them.Four decades on, and eight years in the writing, volume one in the series of this untold story of Royal Windsor Safari Park in now complete, and hope it will give the reader a glimpse into the magical, hardly believable, barely known world of animal keeping.

A genuinely remarkable first hand account of danger, joy, heartbreaking sadness, heroism, death and romance, a true adventure, a story of how once long ago a menagerie of wonderfully exotic, loved, and needed wild creatures, and a handful of mad-cap Windsor Safari Park Rangers, unselfishly and bravely lived their lives on the brink, and gave their full to each and every dangerous day.Killer Whales, Tigers, Sex, Drugs and Rock n Roll, a journey of discovery.
