In 1940 Morris Mills at 16 joined the tramp steamer 'New Westminster City' as a deck apprentice and survived the dangers that lurked both above and below the sea in wartime, especially in Arctic Waters. In 1942 disaster struck. His physical infliction befell him, not on the open sea - like many of his unlucky contemporaries - but whilst in his bunk laying alongside in Murmansk Harbour. Hospitalisation in Russia was a traumatic experience for a 18 year old youth. The realisation that his chosen career was shattered compounded his depression. With superhuman determination he overcame his predicament. The brief elation he felt at being repatriated aboard 'H.M.S. Edinburgh' to Britain was dispelled when U-Boats sank the cruiser. Rescued and again hospitalised in Russia for many more months Mills finally arrived home aboard an American cruiser. This story vividly describes his success in overcoming his disability and forging a new career and life.
