White Ship - Red Crosses is a great read. It covers the conversion and work carried out on board Her Majesty's Hospital Ship Uganda during the Falklands War fought between Britain and Argentina in 1982. With the backdrop of the conflict, the reader is carried along at a fast pace as the ship proceeds south to work in the unforgiving conditions of the South Atlantic Ocean. Contributions from many of those who were working on board the ship at that time make interesting reading, and further contributions from the injured servicemen who were treated and cared for on board this floating hospital are, simply, inspiring. A recent high quality index is a welcome improvement to this delightful Fourth Edition. A hardback Limited Edition due out during this thirty-fifth anniversary year (2017) of the Falklands War will be a fitting tribute to all those recognised in this unique coverage of 'A British Hospital Ship at War.' Remembrance Week November 2017. A. Kennedy, Scotland.
Reviews of White Ship Red Crosses Fourth edition
A great read
A review written by A Kennedy on 07 Nov 2017
Inspirational and uplifting
I was glued to your book, White Ship - Red Crosses, which I found fascinating, inspirational, and uplifting. Your descriptions of the events, coupled with the additions by your colleagues and patients put me right alongside you on board the hospital ship at that time. The fact that I know some of the people added to the enjoyment. All I can say to you all is well done and keep up the good work. Thank you once again, and congratulations to you and all those who were with you down south in 1982.
