A bit less in South Africa, depending on the city or area. Or, let us quote you for a LEGEND book AND  photo. While stocks last.

Mike Hoare turned 100 years old on 17 March 2019 – St Patrick’s Day. Luck of the Irish! For a man who espoused the philosophy that you get more out of life by living dangerously, to reach 100 years is phenomenal. ‘Mad Mike’ certainly is a Legend.

Five of the Wild Geese joined with Mike and his family and friends at the home of Chris Hoare in Durban, South Africa, to honour Mike, and to celebrate the occasion. A lot of short and honouring speeches were made and a lot of cake was eaten.

His son and biographer, Chris Hoare, appeared on the CNBC TV programme Talking Books on 1 April 2019, talking about his father’s extraordinary life.
