Sail Ho!


Review from Melbourne's The Age on this day in 1958:


SAIL HO! - My Early Years at Sea

By Sir James Bisset, ex-commodore of the Cunard Line

The wartime commodore of the Cunard Line makes an outstanding contribution to the literature of the sea in this vigorous, authentic account of life under sail when deep-water sailing was making its last challenge to steam. The man who was later to command the world's biggest ships, the "Queen Mary" and "Queen Elizabeth," writes a book that will fascinate all lovers of the sea and ships. 28 illustrations. Price 25/ (Postage 9d.).
