Diplomatic Despatches is an edited collection of the author's weekly letters to his mother from 1945 to 1984. The letters follow Mason's career from his entry into the British army at the age of 17 to his work as an experienced and accomplished diplomat, culminating in his appointment as British High Commissioner to Australia.

Diplomatic Despatches is a fast-paced, engaging and revealing account by an observant commentator. The book's piquancy derives from the commentary of the mature man reflecting on his life's experiences. The book is also a tribute to his wife, Margaret.

Within the larger narrative, the reader will find a touching story of love and personal commitment between two extraordinary people.
