She looked like just about like the other diesel powered, Balao-class submarines crafted in the '40s. But there the similarity ends.

Here is her story: from... more...

For any fan of the exploits of Para Handy and the motley crew of the Vital Spark, this memoir is not to be missed. Keith McGinn's capers on the puffers off Scotland's West Coast are funnier than Neil Munro's tales at times, but they are also sadder too. The thing is, all of these stories are true. McGinn worked on those puffers, man and boy, for nearly... more...

The book charts 250 years of piracy, from Cornwall... more...
