Mrs A’s Indian Gentlemen

Set in a railway town in the west of England during the winter of 1943 and spring of 1944, this story focuses on the experiences of three Indian men brought to the UK to help prepare in the run up to D-Day invasion of Europe and the people they come into contact with.

And that is how railway engineer Imtiaz ‘Billy’ Khan, logistics supremo Vincent Rosario and maths prodigy Akaash Ray find themselves in Swindon, lodging with the well-intentioned Mrs A, hilariously navigating bland food, faulty toilet cisterns, secret assignments and a mutual distrust of one another.
