Abstract:

Although written anonymously, the writer of the famous quartet of famous First World War sea-reportage books was identified as Rev. Montague T. Hainsselin. He was appointed to the chaplaincy of the Royal Navy in 1903, although he had been almost born into the Navy, having been raised in Plymouth. He served on many ships in his long career, from battle cruisers to the huge super dreadnoughts in the Mediterranean, Home and Channel Fleets. During the First World War, he served in the Home Fleet based in Scapa Floe and was present at the only major sea-battle of the war at Jutland. Few men were been appointed so well as the Chaplain to report the inner workings of the Royal Navy, from the lowliest stoker in the boiler room to the officers commanding entire behemoths of steel. Observant and witty, Rev. Hainsselin offers a view of the Royal Navy at War that has rarely been surpassed.
