Remaining in civilian life whilst his three close brothers were accepted into the Armed Forces, Philip started gardening, then moved up to electronic process work and later fine grinding. After working in three districts of Essex, Philip gained forklift truck driving and gardening experience in Lancashire. Later on, he was in charge of the petroleum store. My Odyssey is Philip's tale of life, narrating all the twists and turns he encountered along the way through his working life and stays in hospital for surgery. Experiencing a long-lasting concussion gave him a special insight into the effects of brain injury which added to his spiritual life and understanding of the Bible. He expresses his affinity with Jesus Christ who he believes visited his hospital bedside, teaching him lessons he could not have learned in any other way.
