First published in 1944 The Twelfth and After was written while its author J. K. Stanford served in North Africa and soon became a classic of sporting humour leading to its many reprints. Including chapters written subsequently by J. K. Stanford, it forms the complete memoir of Colonel the Hon. George Hysteron-Proteron, known in his club as 'the old Grouse-cock' and one of the best shots in the country. Filled with line drawings by V. H. Drummond, this is light-hearted and often hilarious satire, tracing George Hysteron-Proteron's life from the time when he was still in his cot and he shot his Scottish nanny in the behind with a pea shooter.
