Beginning with a recollection of rural life in pre-war England, with World War 2 seen through the eyes of a schoolboy during the ‘Occupation’, the book spans eighty years and all the world’s oceans. The many strands of the memoir include nautical nostalgia, recalling seafaring in the immediate post-war era before the decline of the former colonial powers and the traditional shipping companies – trading around the Indian Ocean coasts, and in Burmese waters before the military government became established – Iran before Mossadeq and after – Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf in boom times and war times – happy days ashore and afloat in Australia, Canada, Mexico and the Seychelles – adventurous and exciting times working for the world’s richest man – yachting deluxe on a superyacht, meeting many remarkable people in some beautiful places – good and not so good times in the shipping industry around the world.
