We have 5 copies of H.M.S WASP by Peter Holloway to give away. Set in a time before mass tourism and the exodus from the west Indies of families seeking work in the United Kingdom, Ted Harris spends his National Service in a Royal Navy sloop touring the Caribbean. For him and his messmates the life of sunshine, sport, calypso music, and exciting girls is in complete contrast to the dull grey austerity of post war Britain. But for Ted Harris, it is a life changing experience which leads in a direction that he could not have imagined when he first joined the Navy.
