The Life & Times of Commander Bill King


Bill King's Story

William Aelian King was born in England in 1910. He never knew his father as he died during WW1. The title "The Stick & The Stars" comes from the title of his first book which chronicles his early life upto WW2. The book is out of print but can be bought on Amazon or any number of online book stores. Its a facinating read and I recommend it to anyone interested in British and Royal Navy history between the wars. He was born into what can only described as 'British upper class' though his father was Irish and his mother a daughter of the Scottish McKenzes.

In 1922 Bill entered Darthmough college and thus began his long career with the Royal Navy.
