About the author
Anthony Lambton Burn, the
author, was born in 1929 in the south of England and was 10 years old when the
Second World War broke out. His family lived at Sidcup, Kent right on the direct
route taken by the German bombers on their way to London and only sixteen miles
from the city. He lived right on 'bomb alley' as it was called and the family
home had every single window in the house blown out five times!
After the war the author was
called up for service in the Royal Air Force, received training in radio and
radar, and spent the next couple of
years on the Berlin airlift (the so called 'Cold War'.)
Returning to 'civvy‑
street' he decided that he wanted to see a bit of the world so he signed a
contract with a bank agreeing to fly out to New Zealand. He met his wife there,
completed his contract, and set up his own photographic business at Upper Hutt
just a few miles north of the capital, Wellington. This proved to be a very
successful venture, ending up with 36 on the staff, a head office, three
branches and a retail shop.
After eleven and a half years he
sold the business and moved to Auckland. There he joined the sales staff of
Universal Homes, a house building company, owned by a remarkable man named Bill
Subritzky. In this book the author describes how Bill Subritzky held regular
meetings in Auckland attended by hundreds of people, many of whom received
miracles of healing, many others had their first introduction to Jesus Christ.
Lambton Burn was a member of the Mairangi Bay Lions Club for nine and a half years and has some interesting tales to tell about that. He became a member of the F.G.B.M.F.I.
(Full Gospel Businessman's
Fellowship International), served for two years as the President of the Takapuna
Chapter, and gives details of his involvement with them.
Lambton Burn and his wife moved
to Australia in 1984 to join their three children who had preceded them and
advised their parents that they were going to make Australia their home. The
reception they gave their parents was to say the least unusual and is detailed
within the book.
After an 'initiation' period
learning about selling properties on the Gold Coast the author set up his own
real estate business at Palm Beach, having first obtained the necessary
licenses. After about four years in business there he and a friend started the
Palm Beach/Elanora Chamber of Commerce. For work involving getting a Police
Station built in Palm Beach he received two certificates, one received in 2000
from the Federal Electorate of McPherson, the other received about a year later
‑ a Commonwealth Recognition Award for Senior Australians signed by the
Prime Minister, John Howard.
Lambton Burn is the oldest son of the late Lambton Burn Senior who was a naval officer and the Naval War Correspondent for the Daily Mail Newspaper during W.W.2., Chief Script Writer for Pathe Pictorials after the war, and wrote a book "Down Ramps" covering the Second World War that is still available in libraries all over the world. In his latter years in New Zealand he was with the National Film Unit and wrote the commentaries covering the two trips the Queen made to N.Z.
Are you interested in a bygone
era, so very different from the one that this present generation lives in?
Lambton Burnís autobiography
takes us back to the early 1930's, to the Garden of England as it is often
referred, to the County of Kent. This is where the young Burns grew up, with his
brothers Chris and Roger, and later with Bruce and Nigel, who were born during
the period of the Second World War.
What was obviously a very secure
family life was suddenly changed with the declaration of World War 11. Lambton's
father, like all other able bodied men, joins the services to do his duty for
King and Country.
Lambton is just starting grammar
school and is soon involved with a typical gang of friends. He relates his
wartime adventures amidst the destruction of the bombing raids of the Battle of
Britain. He brings a perspective to all this that only a young man could relate
to at that age. There is no doubt the hand of God was upon his life, as he was
spared from some life threatening situations.
Lambton covers his early life in
a very interesting and inspiring manner ‑through National Service in the
R.A.F. right through to a new life in New Zealand, where he runs a successful
Later, a series of events lead Lambton into a spiritual experience of true Christianity, when he is confronted by the supernatural in the terms of physical miracles.
Lambton brings a refreshing feel
to this autobiography that will make you smile and then challenge you, as to
where you stand in regard to the Creator of our Universe.
Even though things have changed
radically in this last generation, God is there, ready to accept us all.
I highly recommend this life
story of Lambton Burn.
