Arctic Rescue: A Memoir of the Tragic Sinking of HMS Glorious by Ronald Healiss

A harrowing first-hand account by Royal Marine Ronald ‘Tubby’ Healiss about his survival at sea after his ship, HMS Glorious, was sunk during WWII. This was written in 1955 so the language is a little dated and, I expect, the comparison between life on board then is very different to today.

Rich in detail, Mr Healiss describes life on board, at home, on shore and the sinking. The survival part is hard to read at times.
