First In, Last out Author Andrew Fyall Featured in The Daily Drone
The author of an enticing autobiography, First In, Last Out, Andrew Lyall got featured in the private newspaper, The Daily Drone. The feature was first published on 14th of December 2019. In the article, Fyall remembers and praises Arthur Christiansen, the great editor of the paper in the 1960s.
As a journalist, Andrew worked as a reporter in the 60s and 70s. He also worked as a foreign correspondent for the Daily Express and travelled around more than 70 countries. He describes living as a reporter in the Cold War era from the Cuban Missile crisis to the emergence of Martin Luther King and his crusade against racial segregation. He lived to report all these historical moments, providing first-hand accounts to the Express readers around the world.
First in, Last Out was the mantra of the foreign correspondent. This is the story of one of them and a fascinating and vibrant account of how frontline journalism used to be when hot metal and hot tempers ran Fleet Street and covering the story meant living the story.
