It has been over a year since my dad and I started the journey of transcribing his old log book into digital form and now, after 62 years it is out in paperback and on kindle for the enjoyment of all.
With the last 3 years of covid lockdowns and generally the fact that today is my dads 79th birthday – any excuse to spend time with him is good time spent.
62 years ago Philip Wood spent his 17th birthday in the Mediterranean, 11 days after he joined the ship as a bright-eyed Apprentice Midshipman.
The book gives lots of detail on the 3 1/2 years of his apprenticeship sailing with nine different ships all around the globe.
