Default Life's Little Stories In The Navy

I had added a post to a thread I had created over 6 years ago, here - however, this forum is perhaps better suited.

After my Fathers recent passing, the stories he had relayed to me, were worth keeping. So I did, and had them self published, before making them available on Amazon below. I felt they were worth sharing, even if there were any inaccuracies, due to my lack of knowledge or communication errors. The stories told, were the important part of the book I wanted to share. I simply hope it makes a few smile..

Congratulations Ian, publishing is not an easy business so all credit to you for doing this tribute to your father and preserving his memories (and memory).
I did this for my own father by publishing his Midshipman's journals, and for Captain Wickham Malins, a former near neighbour and am now, with much Forum help, working through the memoirs of a former ordinary seaman who spent his entire war in HMS Tartar.
Well done
