NAVY BOOKS

(We are listing them here and we are working on page for each book giving you more details. Over time links will appear but we thought listing the books first is the best way of getting the information to you!) The content of these books is absolutely exceptional and they show how marine knowledge was shared prior to computers. By simply picking up a book and finding a comfortable place to read it you could establish an expert level of knowledge on topics like seamanship, navigation, ship handling, engineering, emergency procedures etc etc. As a retired Naval Officer I encountered books like these and computers and I must stay that the books were superior. If you are interested in any of these books just let me know and I will construct the detail page for that book so that you can better understand it's content and condition. You can e-mail here at ron@northtreasure.com

NEW BOOKS ABOUT THE ROYAL CANADIAN NAVY

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a picture of me when I was young and skinny and had no grey hair! This is why I have a website to help support our Navy history. When you take your ship to sea there is great adventure and excitement. When you are on a warship in the cold war things sometimes got a bit tense. But it sure was fun! And seeing the Canadian flag on the stern was a great source of pride. The crew worked as a team to solve any problem from rough seas to breakdowns to exercises and operational cruises with a full war load of ammo. Canada has the longest coastline in the world and we need a strong Navy which ships and crew to do the job. But in the last 12 years not one replacement Navy ship has been launched and we now have a Navy with no supply ships and half the ships they had are no longer operational. 

And here is one more point about seamanship.  I learned a lot about that in the Royal Canadian Navy. When I wrote my Canadian Boater's card test I got 100% on the exam. But I can tell you that if you study say Vol II of the Admiralty Manual of Seamanship you will learn more about seamanship than any study for our Boater's card. The card is a good idea but the standards and information required to be a good sailor in our Navy are much much higher.  I suggest to any person considering operating vessels of any size on rivers, lakes and oceans to also consider reviewing the information on naval seamanship that has developed over hundreds of years.

One of my favorite songs is the Bryan Adams Ric A Dam Doo song sang by the wives of Canada's PPCLI and it gives you an insight into the Canadian Military. Watch the video here. Thanks Bryan!
