Roger Morgan-Grenville was a soldier in the Royal Green Jackets for 9 years, during which time he served in 5 continents, and led the first expedition to successfully retrace Shackleton's extraordinary journey across the island of South Georgia. His principal career as manager of a kitchenware company reflects his passion for food, and he was also a founder, and first head fund raiser for the charity Help for Heroes. He once appeared on Mastermind with the specialist subject Flanders and Swann, without ever troubling the second round. He is a passionate, but talentless, cricketer, and co-founded the White Hunter Cricket Club in 1986, the subject of his book Not Our First Ball. Roger is 53, married and has 2 teenage sons.
