When the War Started; 7. "Skin" and Striking the Happy Medium; 8. Naval Pranksters and Gangsters; 9.

Visitors' Day; 13. We Must Have Officers, But Why?; 14. Cornwallis (pp.262-313). With a Glossary of Naval Lingo. "Most of the troops were delivered to that part of Canada which was nearest the war, Halifax. When we arrived there we tried to make believe that it would be just like thesummer training period we enjoyed the years before. When we would play at mock warfare and feel very courageous about it all knowing that it was all pretence. Where the hero could lie down dead and rise again to fight another day. Or meet the gang in the little red school house for a beer that night. But now, the minute that you stepped off that train, you realized, or atleast thought you did, that here was a far different Halifax! This was the real thing. Now the government was going to get its money back and prove t he worth of all that pre-war training." - pp.100-101. "Question: 'What happened to Henry Hudson?' "Answer: 'He was marooned with disgrace from the Royal Canadian Navy. One dark Saturday, at eleven o'clock he was put ashore atHalifax clothed only in a duck suit. Then he was left on Barrington Street with only a tin of spam, a water bottle and a service revolver with one ro und of ball ammunition.'" from a series of very silly officer-seaman interrogations. - p.259. "Eight o'clock found me at the North West entrance of the Public Gardens. A beautiful landscaped park of winding paths and fragrantflowers, in the heart of downtown Halifax. There is a fair sized pond situ ated in these lovely ground [sic] and, floating upon the pond are little model ships. They seem to portray an established fact that the people of Halifax are, first and foremost, sea minded." - p.227. The as yet unwritten book:The Care and Feeding of Naval Rabbits, p.158. "The sailor that you see rolling down the street is not all rum and tabacco [sic] and tattoo marks as you might have been led to believe. He may have exchanged his memories of Kant with another who has studied Freud or Voltaire." - p.161-2. "All the illustrsations appearing in the book and jacket design, were accomplished by Pete Younger, who,since the printing of the first edition, has rejoined theRCN and at present is instructing New Entries at Cornwallis. During the wa r Younger could have accepted a posh number ashore doing art work for the government but he elected to remain at sea where he saw considerable serviceon the North Atlantic, Mediterranean and 'D' Day operations in France. Man y will remember his work of art on the gun shield of HMCS Moosejaw, depicting a roaring moose chasing Hitler who looks anxiously over his shoulder at the moose who has a section of Hitler's pants in his moutn and a 'U' boat draped in his antlers. What the author has failed to put in printing, the artist has done it with his clever pen." - from the rear panel of the dust jacket.
