4. Bond’s obituary
Ian Fleming wrote Bond an obituary for You Only Live Twice. It is from that obituary that we learn about Bond’s early life. His father, Andrew Bond, a Scottish man, worked for a weapons industry and traveled often with his family. His mother, Monique Delacroix was a Swiss woman. Both his parents died when he was 11 and he moved in with his aunt in England. Bond graduated from Eton when he was 17 and got recruited into the Royal Navy. “The world is not enough” is the Bond family motto.
