"ABSTRACT: This paper is based on an unfinished account of a wartime voyage undertaken by Captain K.C. Arnell of Bermuda in command of a surrendered French oil tanker in 1940. It is particularly interesting as it provides an insight into the problems of manning the wartime merchant marine and those experienced in a convoy in the early days of World War II, when there was a lack of sufficient escort vessels and an increasing enemy threat from both submarines and aircraft."

Pp (4),v-x,1-205,(1) + frontispiece + 4 leaves of plates. One illustration in the text. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering tospine. Priority of cloth colour unknown. William Branch-Johnson (b. Octobe r 20, 1893, in Walthamstow, Essex, England - d. April 6, 1979). "Just over one hundred years ago— on 14th July, 1857 — the last of the English prison hulks, the Defence, was destroyed by fire at Wooiwich. . Nearly everyone has heard of these hulks, yet this book is their first detailed story. They tend to rank with the galleys as vaguely apprehended chambers of horror, nottoo closely confined to any particular period in history. The truth is tha t, having been established rather less than two centuries ago, they remained in use as floating prisons for civil prisoners into the lifetime of a fewpeople still living. Many famous ships ended their days in sombre fashion as prison hulks, moored off the mud banks of the Thames Estuary or Portsmouth Harbour. Here their inmates formed a source of cheap and convenient labour in the dockyards. Ships used for this purpose included the Bellerophon, to whose captain Napoleon surrendered in 1815, the Discovery, which had accompanied Captain Cook on his last voyage, and the Euryalus, which had fought with Nelson at Trafalgar. Bellerophon and Euryalus had, in succession to each other, the ultimate shame of being juvenile prisons. The record of theprison hulks is also the history of the efforts to reform them. There is t he same contrast between their critics who describe them as 'hell on earth'and the complacent eulogies of their official defenders, as can be seen in the struggle for social reform in this and other spheres today. Amongst th e early reformers was the indefatigable John Howard, who was not sparing inhis criticism of these institutions. This book fills a gap in the history of penology. " - from the dj flap.
