Good Evening Mr Bond …

This is a picture of the author Ian Fleming (1908-1964) best known of course as the creator of the James Bond series of spy novels.
Fleming wrote his first Bond novel, Casino Royale, in 1952. Fleming’s life is well documented and there are  two 1951 connections … during this year Fleming purchased a house called White Cliffs  in Kent from his friend, playwright and actor Noel Coward.
He also lost his commission in the Royal Navy Reserve in 1951.
