About The Book

Leaving the shipyard where he learnt his trade a young marine engineer joins his first merchant ship at the outset of the Second World War. No sooner has David Watson adjusted to the difficulties of life at sea than fate intervenes. He eventually finds himself embroiled in the famous and bloody Pedestal convoy to re-supply the strategically important island of Malta. A strong narrative pays homage to the fortitude and heroism of those men of the sea who risked so much to provide the wherewithal for survival of the beleaguered islanders and servicemen. It is based on actual incidents particularly in the career of the authors father although the main characters are fictitious.
