1 PERKINS, J. David. Canadian Submarine Service In Review. First Edition in dustjacket.
Vanwell Pub., St. Catharines, 2000, ISBN:1551250314 
PERKINS, J. David. The Canadian Submarine Service In Review. St. Catherines, Ontario : Vanwell Pub., (2000). First Edition. Pp. (4),v-ix,10-208. Illustrated. Double column. Large square 8vo, blue cloth, copper lettering to spine. J. David Perkins (b. May 1, 1937, Oshawa, Ontario - d. August 13, 2006, Riverport, Lunenburg County, N.S.). A very well-illustrated overview of Canadian Navy submarine operations from their pre-history to the recent and ongoing acquisition of Victoria class boats from the United Kingdom. "The Canadian Navy acquired its first submarines on the day the First World War was declared. As well, Canadian officers served in all theatres of war aboard British submarines, continuing into the Second World War. During WWII andthe following Cold War Canada owned no submarines, but 'rented' submarine services from Britain and the US with which to train its large, modern anti-submarine fleet. Finally, during the 1960s the decision was made to acquire submarines for the RCN, and Canada now has a very dedicated submarine service of its own. Perkins, himself a submariner, ably chronicles that evolution in these pages." - from the dustjacket. Very good in dustjacket. 30.00

2 PERKINS, J. David Canadian Wartime Submariners. pbk.
Seaboot Productions, Boutiliers Point, N.S, 1994, ISBN:096990021x 
PERKINS, J. David. The Canadian Wartime Submariners. Boutiliers Point, N.S.: Seaboot Productions, (1994). Pp. (6),[7]-40. Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated stapled pale green card covers. "The Canadian navy operated submarines during World War One, and for a short time between the wars. Canadian submariners served overseas during both World Wars and continued in that traditionthroughout the Cold War. Through the deeds of her submariners, Canada has earned a rightful place in the annals of submarine history. It would be impossible to consider Canadian submarines and submariners without including the Royal Navy. The Canadian navy's involvement in submarines during World War One came about only because of RN participation and the availability of RN-trained perseonnel. During World War Two the Royal Canadian Navy had no submarines of its own. Britain, however, afforded Canadian officers the opportunity of serving in RN submarines, and RN training submarines were basedin Canada." - from the introduction. Very good. 8.00
