Bob Le Vaillant Bob Le Vaillant's life changed dramatically some years ago after he and his wife adopted three children. Having stopped work, Bob found himself with some spare time while the children were at school, so decided to write about his experiences, first as a soldier and then as a community social worker. Bob joined the Army at 15 and travelled widely: Borneo and Singapore, Naples and to sea with the Royal Navy. He returned to the Far East, to South Korea and Hong Kong and he finished his service at the Ministry of Defence in Whitehall. He describes his Army experiences as 'Kiplinesque', and a clue to his writing style is that his favourite author is Leslie Thomas. In 1982, Bob founded Stepney Children's Fund at Toynbee Hall in Whitechapel and, when he left the Forces in 1986, set up and ran Toynbee's Children's Department. His work over the next two decades brought him into direct contact with thousands of Britain's most disaffected young people. Bob and his family moved to Deal in 2005. He has written three novels. The first two are semi-autobiographical and the third is about the Deal bombing. None are published and Bob feels that as all three are bound to upset or embarrass somebody, they are probably better used as a source for a series of short stories which he is currently producing and calling Motley Childhoods. The series starts with his childhood leading up to entering a Children's Home in 1960 and then joining an Army Boys Regiment.
