Descripción

Edinburgh: Pentland, 1990. UK first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 229 pages, illustrated in B&W and color.---------------------------------------------- In this book the Author entertains and stimulates the reader with his story which succeeds in combining courage, humour, drama and even eccentricity. Born in a Scottish castle with all the traditional values of the upper middle class and of a public school education at Wellington, he joined the Royal Naval Reserve as a midshipman in 1939. He describes in vivid terms his wartime service. At 20 he was promoted to his first command in Coastal Forces and saw continual service in the English Channel during a particularly perilous period of naval encounter. This he tells with considerable frankness even to a description of his own court martial in 1944.Later he served in the Arctic convoys to Russia where danger and severe conditions were always present.-------------------------------------------------------------------- After the war he found himself in many controversial situations including the two salmon poaching wars. He was also a candidate against Jo Grimond in the Orkneys and Shetlands. His appetite for travelling has been insatiable and in the course of his life he has met many national and international figures who are all described. The foreword is written by Surgeon Vice-Admiral Sir John Rawlins. N° de ref. de la librería 36416
