The Russian Revolution forever changed the lives of many in Russia, not least those who had been in the service of the Imperial forces. This book traces the life of a young naval o?cer from his graduation in 1918 in St Petersburg through the ensuing Civil War, to Shanghai in the 1930’s, Indonesia in the 1940’s and 1950’s and ?nally Australia. The ?fty year span of this odyssey takes place during some of the most momentous historical events of the 20th Century, such as the Russian Revolution, World War II and the subsequent painful decolonization of Asia.

Igor Labzin has written this factual account as a tribute to the adaptability and inventiveness of his parents as well as to the many other Russian émigrés from the Revolution that made a life for themselves in di?cult and ever changing circumstances.
