Being an ex merchant sparks (radio officer) who was at sea from the 60s until the 80sI found this excellent book so true and a lovely detailed
description of life aboard a merchant ship slightly before I went to sea.
The book describes all the various ups and downs of life aboard, like the excitement of getting mail in your port of arrival.The constantly
wondering and guessing where your next port might be .Oh there was so much more in that well written book that I would most definitely
give it 5 stars.A lovely story of a young deck cadet and him making the best of life and love so far away from home.
A great read that brought back do many memories of those happy carefree days at sea
