The first arises from a stoppage of leave which leads up to an amusing episode involving the capture of a foreign smuggling vessel in British waters, and an amusing Christmas party. The others find him up against Chinese pirates, and in each encounter he hasplenty of scrapping and other excitement, and with his comrades brings int o play the ingenuity and daring by which the British Navy justifies its existence as a police force. Raxworthy is a likeable boy, and his brother officers and the jack-tars they lead make admirable and amusing company." - from the dj (not with this copy).
