Peter Fleming

Peter Fleming (19071971) was a British adventurer[?] and travel writer.

His fame has now been almost completely eclipsed by that of his younger brother, Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond books, although during his lifetime he was generally reputed to be the cleverer brother.

Peter was a correspondent for The Times and also wrote a series of books on his travels around the world. Titles include:

In 1935 he married the actress Celia Johnson, best known for her role in the film Brief Encouner[?].

He was the godfather[?] of the British author and journalist Duff Hart-Davis, who wrote up Fleming's life as Peter Fleming: A Biography, published in 1974.
