We see the great battles and the long patrols of the Arctic and the Norwegian shore, of the North Sea, the Channel and the Western Approaches, and of Crete and Malta in the Mediterranean as the men of the 'Kelly' saw them; as Mountba t t e n a n d Lord Hugh Beresford saw them from the 'Kelly's' bridge, as Stoker Rogers saw them from his engine-room, as the sweethearts and wives of 'Kelly' men came to know them."
