Pp (6),7-255,(1). 8vo, blue cloth, blck lettering to spine. "In writing the b ook of stories which he calls Royal Navy Days and Afterwards the author hasrendered a double service. He has given an idea of the general character o f the Naval Officer—gay, serious in amusement and in moments of difficulties of various kinds which will be of general interest to many readers. And this he has done from a sickbed. Incapacitated himself as the result of bad accident on service in the last war, he has written this book with the intention of devoting such financial proceeds as it provides to the benefit of hospitals. He dedicates the book to the memory of an old shipmate both of his and mine—the late George Bradford, killed at Zeebrugge. That in itself shows an inspiration, for in George Bradford's soul there breathed a spirit of complete purity." - the Foreword by Admiral Sir W. E. Goodenough.
