Return to Yemen. By David
Smiley. ('During the civil war in Yemen
in the 1960s, Colonel Smiley, LVO MC OBE,
served as military adviser to Imam Al-Badr
and senior members of the Yemeni royal family').
"When I left Yemen in 1968, I never
expected to go there again. Imagine my surprise
when in October last year I received a note
from the Yemeni Ambassador, Dr Mutahar Alsaeedi,
asking me to contact him as he had a letter
for me. It was from his government inviting
me to go out to Yemen, an invitation which
I knew I would find hard to resist."
