A great drink with a bottle to match. Got the bottle into the pirate pouring position, over my wrist and took a swig.
Be careful as you end up with a great Glug.....

3.0 out of 5 stars The 70,s Navy, 29 July 2014
This review is from: All Hands (Hardcover)
I found the book very informative on the structure of the Navy from 1939, although I feel that the title of the book does not really focus more than 65% of the book on the "Lower Deck" as I had hoped. The officers of the Royal Navy are not the "lower deck" and yet covered quite extensively. The author has a very difficult task to cover a very big period of change in the Royal Navy and does it well, yet again, as with other similar RN history books, it is acknowledged that the "lower deck"
is a place that is now only emerging in print and specifically the period of the 70,s and early 80,s. This was a significant period of change within the RN and society and also a time when the Navy was spread and stretched across the globe, with nine months on the west indies station as a deployment. It was very active in that in Northern Ireland or in the Caribbean yet this period is virtually missing. The Zulu for example was, I believe, one of the only frigates on the West Indies station in the 70,s to go to action stations for real in the Belize incident and a fleet was dispatched to aid the Zulu. The cold war at sea was at its busiest in the 70,s with ships chasing reds all over the North Atlantic and the med, add to that Fishery protection, Oil rig protection using Tribal frigates in the Ice.
Did I enjoy the book, very much and I would fully recommend it, but I do wish Naval Historians would stop whizzing through the 70,s and early 80,s navy, because it certainly deserves a chapter in Naval History

5.0 out of 5 stars The passing of the Andrew, 18 Jun. 2013

A really great read, gives a clear insight into the Grey funnel line/the andrew as it was in that period. A much needed book as we go forward and the new RN forgets its roots

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book, 18 Jun. 2013

No one with any knowledge of the Military Navy of this period has any illusions about what it must have been like, before the mast or on the quarterdeck. This book gives your the real people and the detail, brilliant
