The 1950s. The world was changing. A former Empire and an unlikely sailor were coming of age. As continents and countries redefined themselves, Ronald Phillips set out to see the world from the decks of the P&O line. The engrossing story of seven merchant ships and their naïve young crew member, with the tale of family fleeing pogroms in Eastern Europe for a new life in London. Fascinating and always entertaining, whether recalling scams in Petticoat Lane or encountering a Hollywood princess in Monaco, Ronald strolls through his early years with candour and wit. Discover Betsy who could not boil an egg, yet became cook to the stars, meet the flirtatious grandmother who never committed bigamy with strangers. Unlikely romance, engaging travelogue and glimpse into a kaleidoscope of colourful cultures. A page-turning perceptive and memorable snapshot of life on the cusp of Empire and Independence across five continents. Go to
