Descripción:

For a 'been there-done that' story few could better the variety of experiences of Brett Hilder, especially at sea and in the air. As a youngster in 1928 he went to sea with the Australian shipping line Burns Philip which traded mainly in Pacific and South East Asian waters. He also joined the Royal Australian Navy's reserve. He gained his second mates papers at the height of the Depression but by a stroke of luck obtained a third mate's post on one of the BP ships, trading mostly in the South Pacific, 1936 he went to the RAN for nine months to qualify as a Leiutenant in the sea-going reserve, In the late 30s he gained his master's certificate and rejoined BP and a short tile later was closely involved in evacuating people from the enormous Rabaul eruption. Next he passed his Extra Master's certificate and gained his first commant, a trial run on a large deep sea trawler to NZ and back. He next commanded one of BP's ships, based in Rabaul. He was there when WWII began so it was back to the RAN, but only briefly as he became an instructor on navigation and naval co-operation with the Royal Australian Air Force --- the navy was not pleased. He learned to fly and applied to go on operations with the RAAF's Catalina units. This upset the RAAF who would rather he continued with navigation training. When he went operational he had made the rank of Wing Commander and on Catalina night-flying operations was mining Japanese-held harbours. War ended and it was back to BP as a chief officer. In Singapore he found "pilfering, looting, graft and blackmarketing were rampant." Much of his subsequent service was in the South Pacific where he continued to have a life far from routine --- a few strandings, and near misses, salvage work, interesting encounters on islands fought over by the Japanes and Allies and explorations ashore. His story is an engrossing read, not dimmed by the passage of time. 232 pages including index, author;s b/w drawings throughout, e/paper maps. also by the author. Black hard covers with gilt spine titles may have experienced some heavy seas --- thumbnail section top right front edge missing, cloth slighty lifted in a few places on front board, probably through damp, small crease top back adjacent spine. small ink inscription/stamp top right front pastedown, small ink name top FFEP, text block otherwise VG, name stamp top RFEP. G colour wrap-round art DJ with small section missing front top right , few chips, short tears, creases and light edgewear, not price clipped. N° de ref. de la librería 003021
