Ships

£15.50

And Sealing Wax & Many Things
by Roger Paine

This fascinating collection of true stories was authored by retired Navy commander and former secretary to the trustees of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, Roger Paine. Learn about how the cells in one of Scotland’s biggest prisons were emptied to provide crews for merchant ships in World War II, how fond Her Majesty The Queen is of Royal Yacht Britannia, The Royal Navy at Gallipoli, Rain in May, and Rogue Waves. We are then treated to a guided tour around more than 20 ancient village churches in southern England. Spend springtime with Robert Browning, summer with William Morris, autumn with John Keats, and Christmas with Kenneth Grahame – and find out what inspired these poets to write as memorably as they did. This delightful treasure trove of stories will keep you amused, astounded, and warmed in equal measure.
