 Back cover blurb 

Having published Naval books for over 30 years Mike Critchley here recounts the first five years of his own career as an officer in the Royal Navy serving in ships from Minesweepers to the huge Ark Royal and recounts yarns from days at sea of Reykjavik to far off Singapore. The long boring days at sea are forgotten and here he highlights the many hilarious incidents encountered. If you were at sea in the Royal Navy in the sixties – or just like a good laugh – this is the book for you.

This page’s background is adapted from the delightful cartoons on the free endpapers of the twelfth edition of Ward, Lock & C0.'s "The Wonder Book of the Navy" drawn by the illustartor Thomas Maybank
