Tin Hats, Oilskins & Seaboots

This title presents the wartime career of the popular Alberta-born author/artist. With humour, he recalls his training days as a sea cadet in Calgary and life as a young midshipman. His wartime service began with HMS Renown in the South Atlantic, searching for the Graf Spee, and off Norway engaging the battleships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau. He served on HMS Matabele and HMS Hood, leaving that ship weeks before she was sunk with all hands in battle with the Bismarck. In 1941, he joined HMCS Ottawa, sunk a year later with great loss of life. Surviving this, he joined the destroyer Niagara on convoy duty before going to Algonquin, one of the first ships to open fire in the Normandy invasion. The book is illustrated with Jenson's line drawings, as well as sketches and diagrams of uniforms, insignia and so on. It is a valuable record not only of how ships fought the battles of the Atlantic, but of life on board, where men had to live under difficult conditions for weeks on end - all seen through the eyes of an energetic and engaging young officer.
