Henry Williamson

UK flag (1895 - 1977)

The writer Henry Williamson was born in London in 1895. Naturalist, soldier, journalist, farmer, motor enthusiast and author of over 50 books, his descriptions of nature and the First World War have been highly praised for their accuracy. He is best known as the author of "Tarka the Otter", which won the Hawthornden Prize for Literature in 1928 and was filmed in 1977. By one of those extraordinary coincidences, Henry Williamson died as the crew were actually filming the death scene of Tarka.
