MERCHANT NAVY MILITARY ENAMEL LAPEL PIN BADGE
MERCHANT NAVY MILITARY ENAMEL LAPEL PIN BADGE
Offered by Emblems-Gifts Ltd
Price: 3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye catching Badge, 19 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This all silver ( coloured ) badge is really an Eye catcher, and several people have
remarked on it, some wondering what MN stands for.
Every one that sailed in the British Mercant Fleet should wear one of these,
so that others will know what they used to do.

Air Disasters: Dramatic black box flight recordings

3.0 out of 5 stars A very sad book, 5 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
True stories of flight crashes taken from the cockpit voice recorders, what you are reading is the actual words that
were being spoken on the flight deck as aircraft were crashing !!!!.
I found it quite interesting until it suddenly dawned upon me, I was witnessing people dying, somtimes hundreds of people.
If you want to know the technical reason for a plane crash ok, I'm afraid I couldn't finnish the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Book, 5 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I started reading this book because I used to be a marine engineer in the British Merchant fleet.
What I didn't expect was, it became a book I couldn't put down.
The story of a young bloke who decided he wanted to be an engineer in the merchant navy,and what it all entailed, from mechanical
and people problems to storms, promotions then joining the Royal navy at the start of the first world was.
A really good job putting this book together from his writings

3.0 out of 5 stars Something Different, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Buffalo Airways (Kindle Edition)
This is like a book version of TVs Ice Pilots !.
These guys risked there live daily flying from Yellowknife out into the wilderness.
I still can't figure out, with the old aircraft they were flying, how the never got lost ????.
Not a bad book, but a little too much "hero worship" for some of the older pilots.

4.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down., 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A mans life in the merchant navy, even through the war years when so many merchant seamen were killed.
This book brought back so many memories for me, I was in the merchant navy in the 1960/70s.
Try this book and see what a different world it is to be a merchant sailor.
