Thinking of signing up for Her Majesty's Navy in London? I think they'll issue you an updated version of this manual. Printed in 1952, this book would tell you everything you wanted to know about the navy that year. The Table of Contents is interesting in that it lists sea terms, steering the ship, anchors and cables, boatwork, flooding and fire fighting on board ship as well as a lot of other topics. The ads inside the covers for uniform tailors and Players Cigarettes are fun.

Hardcover - Size is 7 1/4" X 4 1/2"; showing a bit of wear; has a handwritten note written in pencil on the title page. The book is actually in excellent condition for its age. This spine is straight and all the pages are intact and tight.

Published by Her Majesty's Stationery Office, London, England, 1952 - Publication No. B.R.827(52)
