A real salty tale!

This is a story told through the eyes of a young sailor who joined the Royal Navy in 1955 as a Boy Seaman 2nd Class, the absolute lowest rank in the Navy. Follow his induction at HMS Ganges, the toughest boys training centre in England, if not the world, and his first assignment to HMS Cockade in time to visit Ausyralia for the opening of the 1956 Olympic games. This is a thoroughly amuzing tale, tempered with dark moments of despair, as he visits islands in the South Pacific, tours Hong Kong,Korea and Japan, passes through the Suez Canal en-route to Malta and Gibraltar, helps capture an Icelandic boarding party during the Cod Wars. He dives in a submarine to play cat and mouse with our Cold ar adversaries, surfaces through the ice at the top of the world, feel the tension in the boat as it sinks toward its crush depth. Laugh at the antics of his fellow sailors and the strange situations they found themselves in. Learn the meaning of the acronym PASAHB, and sympathize with this naive young sailor as he falls for one of the oldest tricks in the book. Whether a sailor or a dreamer of the sea, this is one voyage not to be missed.
