Having gasped over these hills, able to take the time it took, to speed march up these gradients perhaps after a gruelling day, these men were incredible. I slept so well after reading this ! Thank you to all who did it and got through.

For anyone fascinated by the selection of the Army Commando, this is a first class read. This was truly lung busting stuff. Thank you.

Splendid DVD about the harsh conditions crews on side winder trawlers endured for our cod in a fish shop. Some splendid photography. Not one to be missed by those who enjoy the sea in this island race.

These are superb publications to help identify items and a broad stab at their worth. Of course, anything is worth what anyone is prepared to pay but just for referenc, no militaria collector or enthusiast should be without this on their shelf.

As a service armourer who has had a lifetime on official and unofficial firearms, this book was truly disapointing. I'm sure the politically correct wouldn't buy it anyway but, there have been several splendid books on this subject, this isn't one of them. I'm sure, its been written within the bounds of 2011 but for historians, it has nothing to offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Distant Grounds, fishing out of Hull and Grimsby, 20 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a truly splendid DVD about those days of the wonderful side winder trawlers and less on the stern vessels. I had the honour to do ONE trip on a side winder out of Grimsby as an unpaid deck hand and have never looked the same at a fish since ! This DVD captures the truly harsh conditions and those wonderful folk who trawled into the Arctic for 3 weeks, back in port for 2 to 3 days then back again trip after trip, year after year. Unless anyone has been in freezing conditions in a force 12 hacking ice off with an axe and still hauled, gutted, got otter doors and trawl back over the side, few folk nowadays could imagine hardships these folk just accepted. When a trawler dissapears off the radar because it has iced up and turned turtle and sank with all hands, this DVD does its best to show us nowadays.
