Life in a Blue Suit

|    Home    |

It has often been suggested that I should write a book. However I am either too busy or too lazy to actually achieve this (I suspect the latter is the most applicable). A couple of times I have noted down some experiences, for use in speeches and addresses. I once started to put together the history of HMNZS MONOWAI (II) but didn't get very far. This project has been taken up by David Price who has been most tenacious in pursuing this task.

This site is a form of living book as I hope that former shipmates will send me their recollections to add to the website. Nothing in these pages should be taken as history or as being factually correct ... sailors' tales are somewhat notorious!

I hope you enjoy these pages!
