On Hazardous Service
By A.Cecil Hampshire

Good hardback - jacket tatty at edges

ISBN 0718302532
Publisher: William Kimber, London, 1974
(DANGEROUS MISSIONS IN WORLD WAR II)

256 pages, fully indexed. "..the author has carried out detailed research and here describes the gripping histories of Operation Bridford in which motor gun-boats made night runs for essential RAF supplies to Sweden through occupied territory; the exciting story of HMS Tarana, a converted fishing vessel whose mission was to pick up refugees from enemy occupied France; the Q-ships who, armed with concealed guns and torpedo tubes, offered themselves as bait to trap U-boats and the Vipers who carried out a vital role in the retreat from Burma. In these exploits each branch of our naval services is represented - the Royal Navy, the Marines, the Reserves and the Merchant Navy, each adding its contribution to the glory that Britain's navy won for herself in the winning of the war at sea."
