9781904381068: The Life of a Q-ship Captain

Gordon Campbell remains one of the greatest of Britain's naval heroes. A born leader with an iron resolve, he became the most successful Q-Ship commander of all time, destroying 3 U-boats. He is best known for the heroic fight against UC71 where his Q-Ship Dunraven became a blazing inferno, but fought to the last. This action brought his ship's company a remarkable 41 decorations. This autobiography traces Campbell's early life, his successful naval career and his election as MP for Burnley in 1928. Among its many high points is the running aground of HMS Flora, command of the battle cruiser HMS Tiger, and command of the VC Guard of Honour at the burial ceremony of the Unknown Warrior.
