'This is probably the most important book of its kind for over 70 years'. The Canoeist



‘ easy-to-read style and gives a good impression of life in the Navy at that time. ... There are many interesting stories and anecdotes ... covering some 60 years... all written in a colourful and engaging style. ... Anyone with an interest in naval and social history ... will find it a very good read’.                     Naval Historical Review


'...compelling memoir... ...full of glorious details. ...Bristow comes across as decent, serious, analytical and quietly heroic: a brave public servant doing a tough job. He pays tribute to the young British soldiers sent to guard the airport’s gates. And to his staff, who had to inform Afghan families they did not qualify for evacuation'. The Guardian
