Alfred Mason
- Favourite Briton.

Born in Dulwich, London
Born on 7th of May 1865
Died on 22nd of November 1948

Mason was educated at Dulwich College and Trinity College, Oxford. He served for one Parliament as a Liberal MP (for Coventry), and worked in counter-intelligence during WWI, but his calling was writing, as both a playwright and a novelist. His most famous work is the oft-filmed Four Feathers, but At the Villa Rose with the fascinating Inspector Hanaud is a far superior read.
