    Just what he wanted

    For some reason many people who meet my husband presume he is ex-navy, saying 'don't try to deny it,' until the point where he no longer denies it even though he has never served. He has been looking for a book like this for years. I came across it when I read Surgeon Captain Rick Jolly's Obit recently. I searched for the book and was delighted that Navy Wings had copies for sale, as I support their preservation of those wonderful aircraft.

    'A very useful and sensibly arranged book on a neglected subject,' he says. It brought a smile to his face, which I found very welcome. I look forward to browsing the book, but at present it is his treat. By the way, being contrary he stared at the Z section and is working his was to the front.

    The book is hard back and properly priced and the profit will be well used.

    PS there is a book on what makes a good army officer, I wonder is there a similar book on what makes a good naval officer? My husband is sure puzzled about being mistaken for one, though he takes it as a considerable compliment
