General Information:

Lander - Nancye - "Instead of the big, buxom girl I had known many years before, Nancye was now a slim, elegant, poised woman of the world. Her delightful sense of humour was still the same, and as the wife of a senior Government official and the mother of 2 attractive children her personality had expanded with her responsibilities, and she was amost delightful companion. Noel, her husband, whom I had never met before, is a short, well-built man with very bright, sparkling blue eyes which were the first thing you noticed about him."
