The author states in his preface that ' This little book is published mainly as an outcome of numerous requests for copies of its contents, many of which were sung or recited at the 'Zeebrugge Concert' in the wardroom of HMS Arrogant at Dover the night before we went into action ; when the amusement of verses caused to those who knew that in a few hours they were to set forth to throw the dice with Death was the best compliment they have ever had. They were again given, by special request, at the Concert on Zeebrugge Mole on the now historic November 11th. Written at odd moments on patrol during the last three years, it is hoped that they will appeal to all those who go down to the sea in M.L.'s, and to any others who may take an interest in our doings. His Majesty's Motor Launch 314, December 1918'. The Zeebrugge Raid was an Allied attempt to block the Bruges-Zeebrugge harbour. It was only partly successful, despite the valiant efforts of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines who won eight Victoria Crosses during the action. The author, Lieut. Maxwell, was Mentioned in Despatches for his part in the raid. 1035H. Codice inventario libreria 68008
