The Quiet Heroes

British Merchant Seamen at War

By Edwards

Published by Pen & Sword Books

Bernard Edwards began his sea-going career as an officer in merchant ships towards the end of the Second World War.

He went on to command ships trading worldwide, spending a great deal of time in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. After nearly 40 years afloat Captain Edwards settled in a tiny village in rural South Wales, far from the sound of waves, to pursue a second career as a writer.

His extensive knowledge of the sea and ships has enabled him to produce a series of authentic and eminently readable books which have received international recognition.

In this book he tells of the losses of St Essylt and St Usk
