POCOCK, Lovell, Rev. With Those in Peril : A Chaplain's Life in the Royal Navy. (Upton-upon-Severn, Worcestershire): "This edition published in 1989 by Rev. Lovell Pocock in association with the Self Publishing Association Ltd"., 1986). First Edition thus. Pp (10),11-316,(4). Some illustrations in the text. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

The memoirs of a Royal Navy chaplain, Rev. Lovell Pocock (b. 1908) whose service in the Second World War (with the Eleventh Cruiser Squadron and other units) took him from Scapa Flow to Singapore to the Mediterranean.

"“Lord hear us when we cry to thee for in peril on the sea. So sings the landsman when praying to God to take special care of sailors.

But the sailors pray to God too, led in their faith by such men as the Rev. Lovell Pocock, OBE, MA, RN(Retd). Making light of his war experiences he says, 'During the war I lost everything twice and nearly everything three times, including my Bibles and Prayer Books'. To redress the balance he tells of the unique comradeship of men who sailed together to fight the foe and prayed together for an end to the suffering and death.

Mr Pocock’s pride in the Senior Service, the Royal Navy and in the Royal Marines and their Bands, who so often played for his church services, shines throughout his book. In 1939 he was a young Chaplain on board HMS Ceres, one of the ships of the Eleventh Cruiser Squadron on the Northern Patrol based at Scapa Flow and Sollum Voe. In 1948 he was serving aboard HMS Liverpool where the then Vice Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten flew his flag and entertained the Queen, then Princess Elizabeth.

From Singapore to Colombo in the Far East or from Deal in Kent to Yeovilton in Somerset, this Chaplain worked ceaselessly for the Kingdom of God. When he left Service life he became Vicar to the five hundred villagers of his new parish of Martin, near Salisbury. And when he left, the Bishop of Salisbury with his wife and all four of their children sat in the congregation on his last Sunday.” - from the dj.

Pp (8),[ix],(2),[1]-287,(5) + 8 pages of photos. Map in text. 8vo, white cloth spine, red metallic lettering to spine, red paper-covered boards. "As the Allies pressed forward both in Europe and the Pacific in the waning days of World War II, a little-known battle took place under thefrozen seas off the coast of Norway ... and changed the course of the war. By February of 1944, both Germany and Japan were falling back under consta nt attack from Allied forces. The end would have been inevitable, if not for a desperate, audacious plan by the German High Command. The Germans wouldpack a submarine - boat U-864 - with their most advanced rocket and jet ai rcraft technology, a group of Japanese and German scientists, and tons of mercury for use in missile and torpedo detonation systems. With this, Japan could re-establish air superiority in the Pacific, forcing the Allies to divert troops and material long enough for Germany to re-group and prepare a final defense of the Fatherland. Unknown to them, British codebreakers, working hand-in-hand with the Norwegian underground, had discovered what the Axis powers were up to. ChasingU-864 and her cargo throughout the North Atlantic, the British bombed German naval bases and hidden installations in an attempt to destroy the submarine and her hidden cargo. But in the end, she was able to head out to sea and attempt to complete her mission. The British submarine HMS Venturer was waiting for it. In a cat-and-mouse silent battle beneath the waves, they hunted one another, each waiting to strike. The Venturer won the game, sinking U-864 and becoming the only submarine in history to sink another sub in underwater combat. This is the action-packed, dramatic account of one of the unsung greatest victories in military history, and of a historical moment in the annals of naval warfare." - from the djflap.

Illustrations, maps. 8vo, illustrated white card covers. "In th e final days of World War II, German civilians were in a panic. The Third Reich was in free fall and the Allied forces were closing in from all directions. With the Red Army quickly advancing from the East, Berlin planned an eleventh-hour exodus for upwards of 10,000 women, children, and the elderlyusing a former cruise ship, the Wilhelm Gustloff. Sent off into icy waters of the Baltic Sea on January 30, 1945, they were soon found and fired upon by Soviet Navy submarines. The ship sank that night, taking an estimated 9 ,400 victims to their deaths -- six times the number lost on the Titanic. Yet despite the magnitude of this disaster, both East and West kept this story hidden for nearly 70 years. In this riveting account, award-winning author Cathryn Prince finally gives this WWII tragedy its rightful remembrance." -- from rear cover. Very good. 12.50
