"(G)ives an account of the life of the wireless operator, an honoured position at sea since the days of Marconi....Few such books which convey a descr iption of the duties of the wireless operator with an account of ship's business, life aboard a modern cargo liner and a story of travel, have ever been written by someone within the profession. The author tells her story with light humour , e m o t i o n and an insight into the life of the seafarer, away from home and family for long period of time....Her chosen career as wireless operator opened the doors to opportunities only dreamed of, and hitherto experienced by very few women - to s ai l as s hi p's Sparks. The four years the author served at sea were special in a way perhaps only to be understood by those who have sailed the oceans of the world. She has endeavoured to share these special experiences and memories i n t h is boo k." Min or edg e wear, light wrinklng at top/bottom of spine, tiny glue mark on rear board.

208 pp, large 8vo (9" H). B&w photographs, map. "Like many of his friends, Charlie Hobbs was eager to join up when (WWII) broke out in 1939. Who wanted to take a bank manager's course when you could fly with the RCAF? After qualifying as an airgunner, Charlie sailed for England in 1941 and spent the next two years flying over Europe with the #83 and #207 squadrons. Leaves spent in London and with Aunt Jennie in Scotland provided welcome respites from the terrors of war for Charlie and his chum, Cam, and both looked as if they would be two of the lucky ones. Then Cam was shot down. Six months later, Charlie, too, was shot down in a fiery crash that killed his pilot. Reunited in the same POW camp, Charlie and Cam found themselves forced to plumb depths of resourcefulness they never knew they had, in circumstances they never knew existed. 'Charlie's Story' is all about hope, friendship and the strength of the human spirit." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very minor rubbing.
