Johns was born in Hertfordshire in 1893. He knew he was wandering in circles but he had ceased to care. The events in the book take place around 1941 or 1942 in the North African desert.

If Von Zoyton was at the top of the heap and got one of the first, this would make it around late summer or early autumn 1941.
