Synopsis

After six years in the Royal Navy, Joel Blamey was conscripted into Britain's submarine service in 1926, aged 22. He went on to serve an unprecedented 28 years as a submariner, surviving peacetime accidents and World War II. At the age of 50, Joe returned to general service. He served on several submarines and survived several accidents, such as hitting an underwater pinnacle in Sidon and a collision in Seahorse, from which he was transferred before it was lost to enemy action. While Joel served in Porpoise, it supplied Malta with fuel and ammunition and sank several supply ships. The captured U570 came under his jurisdiction. Later, he survived almost certain destruction in Strongbow. In all Joel survived more than two hundred depth charges. These are but a few of the tales related in this book, told in Joel's matter-of-fact engineer's way.
