    Default When Are You Going Back?

    'When Are You Going Back' is the title of a memoir I've placed on Amazon this week.

    It's taken two years - at 84 I don't rush uphill. But it's been a pleasure, and as it follows the other two: 'The Best of Days', and 'You'll See Wonders' it may be that my writing skills have come on. I end the book still at sea - so will there be another?

    I used a late friend, Bill Wedgwood's watercolour for the cover. Bill was a great old seaman from Robin Hood's Bay. It's an image of Liverpool docks with a tug and its charge.

    Thanks, Doc. That's very gracious of you. With the complexity of preparing a book for publication, then the rigmarol of uploading the proper files, I end up feeling bruised in the head and miss such a link as you provided.
    Here's the link for the UK:https://www.amazon.co.uk/When-Are-Yo...ks%2C87&sr=1-1

    Harry I read an article in I think Sea breezes years ago where this ship in the Tyne was short of a donkey/ greaser on sailing. The federation man went to the next name on his list and went to this seafarers house and caught him sitting down to a meal with his family . The usual story quick quick your services are required . And back to the office. 6 months later the ship returned to the Tyne and the federation man went down to the ship and asked how the donkey greaser turned out . The chief replied very good a very sociable man and very knowledgeable, but the next one you send one make sure he has two legs . Apparently the one who joined had 2 false ones. JS .............

    And why not? Perhaps he was inspired by Douglas Bader.
