  • The Captain's Bath

    CAPTAIN SIR DAVID WILLIAM BONE, C.B.E., LL.D., is one of the most distinguished shipmasters in the British Merchant Navy; he is also an author whose experiences in the war of 1914-1918 are described in Merchantmen-at-Arms and whose personal story of the greater conflict, 1939—1945, is about to be published. Frequently acting as Commodore of Convoy, and for four anxious years in command of an assault landing ship in North African waters, at Sicily and Anzio, the South of France, and finally on the beaches of Malaya, he has much of active incident to recall. He is now retired and finds his recollection of old sea days remembered in tranquillity.
