Product description

Product Description

The author, a 1st radio officer/purser with Alfred Holt & Co, sets out for Australia on the old Glen Line ship Glenogle, now transferred into the Blue Funnel Line, renamed Deucalion, and commanded by irascible ‘Film Star’ Kerr. A great deal of bad weather is experienced on the outward passage, but there are days of sunshine when deck tennis is played. He attends the final day of the test match in Melbourne, flies to Canberra and Sydney, meets a girl while dancing at the Trocadero and goes with her on coach trips into the country. He dances again in Brisbane and visits Lone Pine Koala Bear Sanctuary, and, when in Townsville, enjoys the pleasures of Magnetic Island.

Unable to find a suitable job in Dundee, the author spends three years at GPO Coast Stations, a period also covered in this book.

Review on Amazon UK ”I have read all of Mr Malcolm's books in this series. I consider them to be the best available demonstrating the life and work of a Radio Officer with a respected liner company in the 1940-early 50's. If this is your area of interest or if you have a general interest in the now defunct British Merchant Navy, then read the lot.

The author’s post war Merchant Navy Series in chronological order:

Outward Bound
Back To Sea
Via Suez
Last Voyage and Beyond

All four books include historical photographs.
