Sea Breezes review Book of the month February 2017.......
... This book was right up my street, born in 1945 the author takes us through his early childhood days. Thrust from a happy and comfortable family life into the Merchant Navy as a young galley boy, his first ship was MV "Crinan" He takes us on a journey setting out in life to the far flun exotic ports of South America, India, Hong Kong, Japan, South Africa and Australia etc, and describes the realities of life as a young lad onboard-the fun the excitement the squabbles and the bullies. In New Zealand he jumps ship, and for a time settles into a shore job and makes many friends-he even spends some time in Prison. This is a great read, told in the authors own words, exposing the many tensions of life at sea back then and from his viewpoint.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED-a real life adventure story

A book full of Liverpool childhood nostalgia and 60's Merchant Navy tales and memories.
Robert Ng has delved into his memory to produce a very full and definitive biography of his days in the Merchant Navy. This is a true-life account of a young man not only growing up but also hardening up. Taking the reader from his Liverpool childhood in the 40's and through the highs and lows of sailing the oceans; life onboard various vessels, jumping ship and even spending some very grueling days incarcerated within a New Zealand prison and surviving the harrowing events of the Mt. Eden Riots.
A page-turner that will enthrall and leave you wanting more...
