David Castleton spent most of his working life as PR Officer of St Dunstan’s (now Blind Veterans UK). He joined in 1960 and retired after 33 years of complete enjoyment in his job. David previously worked for The Times, as well as Stafford Picton Public Relations, and also served as ground crew for the RAF. At St Dunstan's, he found working with and for war-blinded ex-service men and women inspirational and exciting. He still numbers many friends among these people and this led him to write In the Mind’s Eye.
