A frank and often racy autobiography. Training as a merchant Navy cadet in 1939, he was called up as an RNR Midshipman. He was swiftly sunk in Kittiwake, then did a spell in Fitzroy where he was decorated for his work at Dunkirk. In 1941 he joined Oribi, where he spent three happy years, much of it on Arctic convoys before joining Wildgoose at war's end. The book also covers the rest of a successful and happy life
