South Africa and the War at Sea

IN WORD AND PICTURE

by John H Marsh

Preface
This is the first of a series of booklets recording the more notable events concerning South Africa in the war at sea.

The end of the war enables some of these stories to be told for the first time. Few of the photographs, either, have previously been published. Except where otherwise stated, they are from the collection of the author or from official sources.

Anyone possessing good photographs, preferably action ones, that might be suitable: for inclusion in this work, is invited to communicate with the author, care of the publishers.

A list of subjects which are to be included in the next and subsequent booklets will be found on the back page.

J.H.M., Cape Town.
