Thank you Alex.

The copy of ML I had was my mother's childhood copy, printed on wartime utility paper. Similarly the copy of SD. Now this is now in a state of near ruin. I read it so often that that the spine was damaged and the front cover is falling off.

The sinking of Wild Cat and the way that Swallow and Amazon separated afterwards always moved me. But I was excited by the escape of Shining Moon through the gorge and although I didn't initially grasp the details understood that it was a great feat of seamanship.
