Not offering to swap, but I happen to have two copies of Blue at the Mizzen-- both first editions, one printed by Collins, the other by Norton.

3 Swap The Yellow Admiral for Blue at the Mizzen? -- rank: 1000
Somehow - due to inefficient management - I have ended up with two copies of The Yellow Admiral, one hardback (rough cut pages though) and one paperback. Does anyone want to swap one for a copy of Blue at the Mizzen? This is probably only going to appeal to Aussies due to the postage cost, but please let me know if you'd like to participate. Tom (tho' I can't think why anyone would have two copies of Blue at the Mizzen...) To be removed from the GUNROOM list send a blank messa ...

We are pleased to offer a hearty welcome to one who honors us with her presence on our simple little list; for do not her names combine those of two former prime ministers (come to think of it, neither would have been very happy with the other) Naytheless, dear lady, your splendid 'Admiral' quote is as fine an entry to the gunroom as we've seen in a long while. If you're a former lurker, we are happy to have you in a state of non-lurkdom. If you're a 'newbie' - oh my , have you some surprise ...

7 The ballad of the yellow admiral -- rank: 1000
Eagerly anticipating the arrival of The Hundred Days and thinking back to the events in The Yellow Admiral, I am reminded of a song from the mid-70s by British singer Al Stewart. I hope this never applies to our Jack. (A belated lurkers-day-out contribution) 'Old Admirals' from Past, Present and Future by Al Stewart I can well recall the first time I ever put to sea, Was on the old Calcutta in 1853. I was just a lad of fourteen years, a midshipman to be, to make my way in sailing ships ...

<<Except for Jack. He don't care because he's Jack.>> Oh but he did care until he found out he had a son! The most charming part of the book (unless I'm thinking of another one, and heaven knows I'm not going to get up and CHECK for all love) is when the admiral is flabbergasted at Jack's complaisance (induced by the euphoria of fatherhood) at the sleazy trick he's played him, and not knowing the cause, assumes hidden depths and interests that are not there--even giving Jack a plum ...
