Books Info:

My Life, and a Few Yarns free pdf Excerpt from My Life, and a Few Yarns I commenced this book with the intention of only writing on the Victorian Navy, and the chapter on the Constance is the result. But a friendly critic told me that it was rather technical and too impersonal for the general public, so I boldly launched into an autobiography, intending it to be a humble effort on the part of an old fossil to depict life in the Royal Navy during a service of forty-one years, as he found it. After all, it is only by the study of fossils that we are able to arrive at any conclusions as to the period in which they existed. It is true that we have among the fossils, to mention a few, Tonge, Smollett, Michael Scott, Marryat, Chambre and Hannay, the last the author of that charming book Singleton Fontenoy, R.N., descriptive of naval life in the fifties of the last century. Nicholas and James are more geologists than fossilists, and only give dry details. Laird Clowes has brought up naval history to the year 1900 in a more human fashion, while Rudyard Kipling - well, we all know his gems of naval life. The war has produced a new school, and I have read its works with infinite enjoyment. I dedicate this ambitious work to the glorious Service in which I passed so many happy years, and (to borrow from Mark Twain) if only a goodly number of its members will show their appreciation by buying a copy, I shall, in more ways than one, be amply rewarded.
