Hard-cover, good condition, with dust-jacket, some fading

Publisher: Holmwork Publishers, Wellington, 1985

Illustrations, maps. No Place To Linger is the story of a wartime Atlantic Kiwi. Action packed, exciting and thought-provoking, this book is more than one man's story of his war. New Zealander, Lieutenant John F. Holm R.N.R., at the age of 28 years in 1940, sailed for England to join the Royal Navy; serving on board HMS Impulsive, Corvette Lavender and Corvette Crocus. This story of danger, hardship and tragedy is also one of comradeship, humour and endurance. How it ended, ten years after the war, makes remarkable and compelling reading. The Battle of the Atlantic may be over, but the memory of those who fought it lives on. This book will help to ensure that their special kind of courage is not forgotten. In the years between 1939 and 1945 the Atlantic Ocean was a perilous place, where German U boat packs lurked, ever alert for chances to attack the merchant ships which continued to carry vital supplies to a Britain beleaguered by war. For protection, these vessels sailed in convoy, guarded by the brave escorts of the Royal Navy. Among the men serving in these escorts was a New Zealander, Lieutenant John F. Holm R.N.R., later Lieutenant-Commander Holm, more than one mans story of his war. It is a tribute to a unique spirit of bravery and determination.
