Author and historian Andrew Lownie introduces his joint biography of the lives of Earl Mountbatten of Burma and his wife Edwina. As first President and then Grand President of ROSL from 1942 to 1979, Mountbatten's long association with the club makes him a fascinating subject for members to find out more about.
