The author spent thirty years in the Royal Navy, most of them at sea, seventeen years on the lower deck and the rest in the Wardroom, and is thus excellently qualified to write about what he himself describes elsewhere as "service in the World's greatest Fleet, newly emerged victorious from the 1914-1918 war". He does so with great charm and a neat turn of phrase. His descriptions of every aspect of mess, ship and Fleet life will at once evoke the sharpest memories among all those who had the privilege of "going down to the sea in His Majesty's ships" in those happier days between the wars.
