The article gives the impression that the author is homesick for rural England. One wonders what the indigenous population made of such an article.

Interestingly, if you look up the author on Wiki, his specialty is Cornish Tin mines/miners/and mining. I can see no connection at all with the Middle east.

I'm with Bob, it sounds like a homesick reflection, though theres nothing wrong with that!
Thanks for sharing, old articles are of interest to a lot of people here.

I think I'm starting to get most of the notes in roughly the right order...... sometimes!

According to my search this is his only article in the Palestine Post.
He is mentioned by name three more times in radio schedules of the BBC Empire Service.

I suspect it's just a random article to fill space on the paper's music and arts page on a lazy week.
