My dreams of joining the British Merchant navy and strolling the deck in a white uniform, are shattered by a punch in the mouth within hours of boarding my first ship. This is the true story of how I traveled across the world as a cadet on a Tramp Ship in the British Merchant Navy in 1961. From South America, where I witnessed the terror of the military, to the South China Sea, where the ship almost sank in massive waves in a typhoon, and on to Okinawa, where the ship caught fire, we lurched from one disaster to another.

Impian saya untuk bergabung dengan kesatuan AL Pedagang Inggris dan berjalan-jalan di geladak dengan seragam putih, hancur oleh pukulan di mulut beberapa jam setelah menaiki kapal pertama saya. Ini adalah kisah nyata tentang bagaimana saya melakukan perjalanan keliling dunia sebagai kadet di Kapal Tramper Angkatan Laut Pedagang Inggris pada tahun 1961. Dari Amerika Selatan, tempat saya menyaksikan teror militer, ke Laut Cina Selatan, di mana kapal itu hampir tenggelam dalam gelombang besar dalam topan, dan ke Okinawa, di mana kapalnya terbakar, kami meluncur dari satu bencana ke bencana lainnya.
