106 DAY, Frances Martin SPENCE, Phyllis, ed. LADOUCEUR, Barbara, ed. Women Overseas : Memoirs of the Canadian Red Cross Corps (Overseas Detachment). pb.
Ronsdale Press, Vancouver, 1998, ISBN:0921870612 
DAY, Frances Martin, Phyllis SPENCE, and Barbara LADOUCEUR, (eds.). Women Overseas : Memoirs of the Canadian Red Cross Corps (Overseas Detachment). (Vancouver): Ronsdale Press, 1998. Pp 382. 8vo, ill. card covers. "In these Red Cross memoirs, some 30 women tell their stories of volunteer work with the Canadian Red Cross Corps in overseas postings during World War Two and the Korean War. These dramatic narratives take us across oceans infested with enemy submarines to witness Canadian women on duty in the UK, in Europe and in Asia. The volunteers shouldered challenging and often dangerous jobs,working as nurse's aides, ambulance drivers, welfare officers, cooks, tran sport drivers and in the social clubs Canadian soldiers visited on leave. We learn how it feels to survive daily bombings and severe food shortages, to witness death and destruction all around, and to acquire the spirit and courage exhibited by so many 'ordinary' people during the war. Laced with humour and filled with grace, these stories are a testament to the vital yet often overlooked responsibilities that thousands of women gallantly accepted for the Allied war effort. The book contains many period photographs as well as an illuminating introduction to the Canadian Red Cross Corps." With many nautical references. Very good. 12.50

The development of submarine technology is studied in detail, from wooden to iron to steel hulls, from hand-cranked to nuclear-powered propulsion, from candle light to electricity, from gunpowder 'torpedoes' to nuclear missiles, as are the personalities involved -- among them David Bushnell, Robert Fulton, Wilhelm Bauer, Lodner Phillips, and John Holland. Tales of dives, disastrous and successful, of engineering triumphs and tragedies, and of combat successes and failures are all included in this fascinating and compelling illustrated history." -from the dustjacket.

Includes time spent with the 8th Flotilla at Algiers and Gibraltar, and with the 10th Flotilla at Malta. "As Safari's Leading Telegraphist, Arthur Dickison had a privileged position in the crew. With access to all signals traffic and the navigation officer as his 'boss', Arthur was afforded a unique insight into daily operations. Throughout eighteen months of war patrols he kept a personal diary (strictly against the rules) of life aboard Safari, recording daily events that ranged from the tedium of long sea passages to stalking enemy convoy; from crash dives to fighting it out with enemy shipping on the surface; from making submerged attacks with torpedoes to 'sitting it out' on the sea bottom while depth charges rained down all around. Pervading all his diary entries is the underlying fear that both he and Safari might never see England again." - from the dj.

The thesis advanced, which has been based on the three great naval wars of modern times, the American Civil War, the Russo-Japanese War, and the Great European War of 1914 to 1919, in which the submarine, the mine, and thetorpedo have played an ever increasing part, is not a mere superficial rev iew recent events, but embodies the lessons—vital to sea empires—adduced from careful study extending over the past fourteen years of rapid development, culminating in the stern trial of war, combined with practical experience gained during three years in command of anti-submarine craft and on the staff of H.M.
