Kingston. ________________________________________________________________________ The tale of the Three Midshipmen is carried on to the Three Lieutenants, the Three Commanders, and the Three Admirals.
The book starts with the arrival of three new boys at a boarding school for young gentlemen.
One boy is English, one is Scottish, and the third is Irish.
Under the influence of various bullies and other schoolboy adversities the three lads learn to stick together, and to look after each other.
They join the Navy, and get various postings by which from time to time they meet, usually under the most difficult circumstances.
Of course they each survive bravely, though any of the boats’ crews that they have the honour to command are mowed down by the enemy.
In other words, some of it is pretty tall stuff, but it was very good fare for the nineteenth century and early twentieth century English schoolboy.
I can remember these books on our 1940s school library’s shelves, very well-thumbed and many times repaired by one of the masters, whose hobby it was to run a voluntary book-binding class.
There are three parts to the book, of which we originally published only the first two, as we were working with a book that did not have the last part.
In this new 2006 edition you will be able to read about the Midshipmen in China....
