A Tramp for all Oceans

Presenting a new book by Geoffrey Walker

From many decades based in Asia, the Author tells his sailors anecdotes of the adventurous years he spent tramping the sea routes of Africa, India, the Far East, and Oceania, sailing under the Red Duster, as well as other Flags, from Apprentice to Captain.

Calling at large and small Ports alike, some little more than clearings in the jungle, up barely navigable rivers or not even marked on an Admiralty Chart. The book captivates the last of an era when ships all possessed their own “heart and character”, when crewed by what may be described as a “different  breed” of seafarer, and which now only lives on in maritime nostalgia.

Book Overview

“A Tramp for all Oceans” is in two parts. Part one covers the early years the author spent in Hong Kong then as an Indentured Apprentice Navigating Officer in the British Merchant Navy, whilst part two “East of Pulau Weh” describes the years spent as a Captain, loosely based on his real-life experiences

The Book is internationally distributed so for details of how to obtain your copy contact this site or link shown below  or from AMAZON Books online.
