Straight talking and positive book review. Drifting Beneath the "Red Duster".

Well mate I have just finished the Book and this is my honest opinion of it!

Your experiences both on board and ashore in the various ports were excellent, you gave the honest an open way that you lived the years, there are some really spicy parts but this makes it all the more realistic, as we all as Seaman know just what that was all about! All of your stories may well ring Bells in many an Ear,what with the happy times and the crazy times too! Fights, Police, you name it I am sure most of us went through a bit of that!

I am sure that you will ge
