Grey Funnel Lines Traditional Song & Verse of the Royal Navy 1900-1970

 Hardcover Grey Funnel Lines Traditional Song & Verse of the Royal Navy 1900-1970 by Tawney is 177 pristine pp & a hornpipe under 500g to post. ‘The Grey Funnel Line’ is the sailors' nickname for the Royal Navy just as if it were another mercantile line. Tawney has a song by the same title, here's the first verse > Don't mind the rain or the rolling sea, The weary night never worries me. But the hardest time in sailor's day Is to watch the sun as it dies away. It's one more day on the Grey Funnel Line. The book is a compilation of one hundred fifteen Navy songs from the author's personal collection. And from the dj >> it has ... songs reflecting every aspect of life in the twentieth-century Royal Navy, both upper and lower deck: war, ship's routine, aviation, submarines, the antics of dockyard personnel, not to mention the matelot's shore-going adventures, both amorous and bibulous. review >>> The book is beautifully illustrated with anecdotes galore.  Excellent/Excellent

Men of War: Courage Under Fire in the Nineteenth-century Navy
Crane, David
Harper Press UK 2009 
 Hardcover Men of War: Courage Under Fire in the Nineteenth-century Navy by David Crane is 480pp, 2 picture sections, 800g to post. Crane offers a unique portrait of the Royal Navy (through the lives of 3 sailors) at a time when it held unchallenged dominion over the world's oceans. reviewer says > A superbly researched work, this utilises contemporary accounts, private letters and official navy to look at the careers of three officers. The first, Frank Abney Hastings, is perhaps the most interesting, for, in the search for glory, action and battle after being sacked in disgrace over a row with superiors, he ended up commanding a steam ship in the defence of Greece - a strange end for a Royal Navy officer. The author builds a powerful case that Hastings transformed sea warfare in the age - his success in the hitherto untested steam boat, using the latest in firepower made the world sit up and take note. Prime Minister Robert Peel's son William and his glittering career had its defining moments on land, although he was a naval man, taking part in the horror of the Crimean war and tackling the Indian mutiny. In a book, ostensibly purely concerned with courage, James Goodenough is the joker in the pack, but knowing the original title makes his inclusion more logical. It was Goodenough who really tried to put into effect an `Empire with a conscience' policy, battling with authority for what he perceived as indigenous peoples' rights, only to die at the height of his powers, ironically from a native's poisoned arrow. All three represent the navy at its best - independence of thought, a strong sense of duty and incredible bravery under fire. The navy, of course represented Britain around the world, and by the time of Goodenough, the author shows it was beginning to recognise its moral as well as military roles. A cracking read about a fascinating time in history.   Excellent/Very Good/Very Good

 Hardcover Book is just a whisker under 500g.194 nicely presented pages. Maps, photos. Submarine's operations in the North Sea & Sea of Marmora based on the diary of her commander 1914-15. A very apt book in the light of attempts to plan for the return of Australia's small sub from the seabed (I believe a figure of 20 million was an estimate) Contents >> E7 had a short career in World War I. She took part in the Second Heligoland Bight Patrol along with E5, D2 and D3. She and the other submarines returned from the patrol on 18 August 1914. Then on 30 June 1915, E7 began a 24-day patrol in the Sea of Marmara. She succeeded in sinking 13 ships and damaging many more. The German Submarine UB-14 was in port of Chanak to await repairs. While there on 4 September, word came of the British submarine E7 entangled in Turkish antisubmarine nets off Nagara Point. The U-Boat's commander, Oberleutnant zur See Heino von Heimburg, Prince Heinrich of Prussia, and UB-14's cook, a man by the name of Herzig, set out in a rowboat to observe the Turkish attempts to destroy E7. . . .now is the time to buy the book & find out what was next.  Very Good/No Jacket

Here Comes the Alabama
Bradlow, Edna & Frank
Southern University Press  1958 
 Hardcover 128pp & less than 500g to post. reviewer says >>> The Alabama was a Confederate warship that single-handedly harassed the fleet of Yankee ships trading all over the world during the American Civil War, sinking many of them. In 1863, she docked in Cape Town, and her crew was feted by the city's inhabitants. This visit made such an impact that a song, still sung today in Afrikaans, was composed by the 'Cape Coloureds'. This small volume, available only from second-hand dealers, describes the visit of the Alabama, and her fate subsequently. This book is one of the reasons that I have become fascinated in reading about the American South after the Civil War, and South Africa after the 2nd Boer War. In both cases, a white population was forced to react to a defeat, which sought to challenge their deluded feelings of racial supremacy.  Excellent/No Jacket

ROUGH PASSAGE And the Adventure of the Faeroe Islands by M. Helen Graham

 Paperback With 5 maps, a very good copy. In 1934, Commander Graham set off single-handed from Falmouth in Emanuel, a tiny seven-ton cutter, on a voyage to Labrador. Once there, he spent several weeks cruising among the remote settlements of Newfoundland and Labrador. On the passage home via Bermuda, heavy gales tested man and boat nearly to the limit. The boom was smashed and the trysail ripped to shreds. The disabled boat managed to make it to Bermuda, where Commander Graham spent the winter. He then sailed home in the spring by way of the Azores. This new edition contains an account of one of Emanuel's earlier voyages to the little known Faeroe Islands written by Commander Graham's daughter who sailed with him. ; 215 x 135mm; 256 pages Near Fine

Pirates
Kemp, Ross
Michael Joseph  2009 
 Hardcover 237pp with two photo sections, over 500g for posting. Pirates have been around as long as people have used the oceans as trade routes, and their reign on the world's high seas has inspired many a novelist. But the type of pirate Ross Kemp is investigating now is a world away from the cutlass-and-peg-leg stereotype of Treasure Island and Pirates of the Caribbean. The corsairs he meets in Somalia, Indonesia and Nigeria are armed with AK47 assault rifles, RPG-7 rocket launchers and semi-automatic pistols. They race towards their targets in speed-boats and board and capture vessels in a flash. They are violent, dangerous and ruthless - they will stop at nothing to get the ransoms they have demanded. Piracy is becoming an increasingly serious problem that is not going away. As the pirates he meets stretch their operations ever further to new hunting grounds, Kemp finds out, often to his cost, how much of a force to be reckoned with they are.  Excellent/Excellent

Find ’Em, Chase ’Em, Sink ’Em: The Mysterious Loss of the WWII Submarine USS Gudgeon
Ostlund, Mike
Lyons Press USA 2012 
 Softcover 524pp including a photo section, 800g for post, faults? v. small corner crease. In April 1944, the highly decorated submarine USS Gudgeon slipped beneath the waves in one of the most dangerous patrol areas in the most dangerous military service during World War II. Neither the Gudgeon nor the crew were ever seen again. Author Mike Ostlund's "Uncle Bill" was aboard the ship as a lieutenant junior grade. Through extensive research of patrol reports in U.S. and Japanese naval archives, interviews with veterans who had served abroad the Gudgeon before its final patrol, and the personal effects of the lost men's relatives, Ostlund has assembled the most accurate account yet of this remarkably successful submarine's exploits, of the men abroad, from steward to captain, and of what we know about her demise. Through these stories we experience the excitement of first sighting, then closing in on an enemy ship, and the seconds ticking away as the crew awaits the detonation of torpedoes. We hear the groans of collapsing bulkheads through the hull of the submarine, then the eerie cry of inch-thick steel as it is rent apart. The swish-swish-swish of a Japanese destroyer's attack approach. The thundercrack of exploding depth charges between muttered prayers and anguished, flinching anticipation where the crew, all equal in peril now, must sit absolutely still and take the punishment as they suppress the urge to do something, anything. We also share the anguish of the girls they left behind when they learned the ship was lost; and of the memories and life lessons of the young men who went to sea abroad Gudgeon before its last patrol knowing hardly anything, and coming home having seen too much. The book recounts the mysterious disappearance of the USS Gudgeon in April 1944.  Very Good/None issued

Captain Bligh and Mr Christian: The Men and the Mutiny
Hough, Richard
E.p. Dutton & Co. Inc, New York USA 1973 1st
 Hardcover 320pp, mapped endpapers & more than 500g to post. The Bounty set out in 1788 to transport breadfruit from Tahiti to the West Indies as a cheap source of food for slaves. But the combination of the tough discipline of Bligh and the attractions of life in the South Sea Islands drove Fletcher Christian and part of the crew to mutiny, and Bligh along with those loyal to him were set adrift in the ship's launch. Their remarkable 3,600-mile, open-boat voyage to Timor is one of the great feats of navigation, while the story of the mutineers' discovery of the uninhabited island of Pitcairn and their attempt to fashion a community away from the pursuing ships of the Royal Navy is as tense as it is horrific. This drama of mutiny, courage, remarkable voyages, human deceit and treachery, first published in 1972, provides an account of this episode of maritime history.  Very Good/Good/No Jacket
