How it works


Signed by the author, Unie-Volkspers, 1944, illustrated, 130 pages, 145 x 220mm, condition: very good.

The book have been rebound in a similar cloth as the original binding (plumcloth by Unie-Volkspers, Cape Town, 1944) is of a poor quality due to wartime print restrictions.

The book is a sailor's account of wartime service on H.M.S. Cornwall in the south Atlantic and Indian Oceans . Amongst many anecdotes is 'Just Nuisance', the Great Dane  officially enlisted in the Royal Navy. The author was the opening bat for Western Province and is related to David Dimbleby, the British broadcaster.
