A large white liner bound for South America, was everything a sea-struck 15-year-old could desire. But rather than a white liner, it was an old, black-hulled cargo boat, crewed by the motliest collection of seamen possible. A dramatic, informative, and at times poignant account of a young lad’s Merchant Navy experiences in the early 1950s. Not a read for mothers! Or those of a prim disposition.
