part of The Artful Bodger Series. Salvador Dali tells a fable of a sardine on the seabed who, seeing a submarine pass overhead, says to his children: There goes our revenge: a great tin made of sheet-iron in which men, covered in oil, are held inside, pressed against one another.

said The Bodger, we really must get organized. Work Study is the latest cry in the Staff Office at the moment. Apparently we’ve been doing it all wrong all these years. Apparently we’ve been doing it all wrong all these years nough for Nelson is not good enough for us after all. Everybody’s got time and motion study charts showing that if you hold your glass in your right hand and the bottle in your left you’ll have time for twenty per cent more drinks before the bar closes. Anyway, Captain S/M has told us all to get our Maintenance Weeks organized instead of having the usual shambles.

To enjoy this book in the 21st century, I think you have to be aware that it was published in 1961, and make allowances. It's something of a period piece by no. .May 17, 2009 Alaric rated it liked it. A genial romp in the post war Royal Navy; very well written, with absolute authority, and a wicked sense of humour.

There comes a time in every bachelor naval officer's life when he starts to lean a bit towards the champagne and the confetti

We Joined The Navy and We Saw The Sea have firmly established John Winton as one of our leading humorists. John Winton's knowledge of the modern Navy is unrivalled, and Good Enough For Nelson shows him back at the top of his form - with a delightful and satisfying blend of humour and insight. If anyone is the true descendant of Wodehouse, it is John Winton. There comes a time in every bachelor naval officer's life when he starts to lean a bit towards the champagne and the confetti. He need only lean a little way - but there's always a wench on the spot to take him up on it.

The dedicated audience for all submarine books will find this to their liking despite the thoroughly British implications, references and innuendoes. The little gems of anecdote, sharp character vignettes and a few sustained examples of superb yarn-spinning help surmount the other hurdles for American readers. It is an inside picture of the shakedown cruise and the war games of a submarine, its crew and officers. Pub Date: March 6th, 1962.
