This work contains one hundred biographies which were published in "The Daily Telegraph" during the past twenty years - men of the Navy, Marines and Fleet Air Arm, as well as the merchant fleet. They include such heroes as the Atlantic convoy commander Peter Gretton and the submariner Godfrey Place, VC; the yachtsman and U-boat hunter Stan Darling as well as the corvette commander Charles Cuthbertson, model for the captain in The Cruel Sea. Bill Sparks, the cockleshell hero, and Derek Pounds, who fought behind the lines in Korea, represent the pluck of the Marines while "Hooch" Williamson, who led the attack on Taranto, and Ken Pattison, who had the best claim to have sunk the Bismarck, demonstrate all the dash of the FAA. Written with humour and insight, here are tales of the derring-do, skilled seamanship and steady judgement which characterises the Senior Service.

Rare Book
Review:
"'...splendid farewells to good men who have crossed the river, many laced with well-judged naval humour, make fine an uplifting reading' Ships Telegraph 'This collection is a healthy reminder of the debts which this country owes its heroes and of the unassuming nature (and humour) of the true hero.' Contemporary Review 'Maritime historians will love it and the modern mariner will find it a fascinating dip.' The Marine Society"
