    WWII Navy Veteran, Chester Collins, along with his coauthor, Steven Denomme, Navy Veteran of 22 years, will be signing copies of their first book, Life of a Sailor. It is comprised of letters written by Chester and his family during his time of service from The story however is an excellent pastiche of naval life in the fifties and early sixties. The main character, Able Seaman Varne is also a typical Jack-me-hearty of the period. This was the post war golden age of the Royal Navy when the navy was a worldwide force and a tot of rum was gold dust, used almost as currency and imbibed on a daily basis/5(1).

    There are a couple must-have books for sailors errr, actually, there are loads of great books out there for sailors. I'd be happy to tell you all the great books we have but the best 'must-have' books are the one's that I've written. Check the following two books out as I'm positive they'll be helpful, practical and easy-to-read and digest. I wrote them for myself so everything is totally. Spencer Tracy stars in John Ford's sentimental adaptation of Edwin O'Connor's novel about the final campaign of a big city mayor, loosely based upon the life of Boston politician James Curley%.

    The jobs of a seaman aboard a schooner were many. Most merchant schooners carried a Captain or Sailing Master, who was sometimes the owner of the vessel. The mate was second-in-command, and was usually responsible for a crew of 3 - 4 seamen and a cabin boy. Any one of these people could assume the role of pilot, and the boy often acted as.   Personnel officials are calling the idea “sailor for life,” a phrase inherited from former Chief of Navy Reserve Vice Adm. John Cotton. The Navy would track sailors from day they enlist through retirement, all the while providing options for them to serve on active duty or in different states of readiness in the reserve.
