Personal ad of the day

"Tough but sensitive ex-classical scholar, ex-secret agent, ex-guerrilla leader, 31, recently reduced to penury through incompatibility with post-war world, would do anything unreasonable and unexpected if sufficiently rewarding and legitimate."

This advertisement was placed in The Times in 1950 by Xan Fielding. There he is above with his wife Daphne and Dirk Bogarde.
