About the Author: P.C. Wren

Percival Christopher Wren November November was a British writer, mostly of adventure fiction He is remembered best for Beau Geste, a much filmed book of involving the French Foreign Legion in North Africa, and its sequels, Beau Sabreur and Beau IdealBorn as plain Percy Wren, in Deptford, South London, England, Percy was the son of a schoolmaster After graduation with a Master of Arts degree from St Catherine s College, Oxford, a non collegiate college for poorer students, Percy worked as a boarding school teacher for a few years, during which he married Alice Shovelier, and had a daughter Estelle, born In he joined the Indian Education Service as headmaster of Karachi High School now Pakistan While in India, he joined the Poona Volunteer Rifles with the rank of Captain, before his service was terminated in October after sick leave He resigned from the Indian Education Service in November It is presumed that his wife died in India, for no record of her return to Britain has been found his daughter having died in England in From there it is claimed that he joined the French Foreign Legion for a single tour of five years though he would have been years of age on enlistment, somewhat older that the usual recruit He lived out the remainder of his life in England concentrating on his literary career One of the few photographs of Wren known shows a typical British officer of the Edwardian era with clipped moustache, wearing plain dark blue regimental dressWren was a highly secretive man, and his membership of the Legion has never been confirmed When his novels became famous, there was a mysterious absence of authenticating photographs of him as a legionnaire or of the usual press articles by old comrades wanting to cash in on their memories of a celebrated figure It is now thoughtlikely that he encountered legionnaires during his extensive travels in Algeria and Morocco, and skillfully blended their stories with his own memories of a short spell as a cavalry trooper in England While his fictional accounts of life in the pre Foreign Legion are highly romanticised, his details of Legion uniforms, training, equipment and barrack room layout are generally accurate This may however simply reflect careful research on his part the descriptions of Legion garrison life given in his work The Wages of Virtue written in closely match those contained in the autobiographical In the Foreign Legion by ex legionnaire Edwin Rosen, published Duckworth London .
