[EAN: 9781443774956], Neubuch, [PU: Foster Press], 1443774952 BRAND NEW *This item is printed on demand.*** , The Fleet from Within, Sydney A Moselry, T0 THE LASS WHO LOVES A SAILOR AUTHORS FOREWORD I AM not concerned in this work with the strategical aspect of the greatest Navy in the world. That has already been dealt with by experts. Rather do I wish in these impressions to present to the public a phase of the Citizen Navy at war which has been hitherto overlooked. .- I refer to the human phase. It seems to have been forgotten that the Great War produced a new Navy as well as a new Army, and it is the atmo- sphere consequent upon the new order of things that I have striven to represent in these pages. I have been prompted towards publishing this book by the interest shown by a number of my old shipmates and friends in the Grand Fleet-R.N., R.N.R., and R.N.V.R. It was through the good offices of the late Commander-in-Chief Coast of ScotIand and my colleagues on hiszstaff that I had down in a super- submarine, of flying in a modern airship, patrolling in a bombing warplane, and of going out during battle practice in the greatest of modern battle-cruisers, known to a mystified public as a Hush hush ship. One of the most potent causes of our triumph in the greatest of all wars was the immediate, unrelenting, and silent pressure of the Navy. Never has the popular and ancient boast Britannia rules the waves been so completely illustrated. Nothing is easier, more futile or more mischievous than merely destructive criticism. The iconocIast, however sincere, is worse than useless. The fireside critic or the bucolic amateur who imagined he could run the Navy by illustrations made with a pointer in the air should hardly have deserved thc attention of any serious-minded thinker. But it was just this type of individual who was, during the earlier stages of the war, most energetic in his criticism of the Service. The Navy needs no defence at my hands. Its record of deeds achieved silently speaks for itself. Despite the clamour for a theatrical display of its wares, and for a trumpet-sounding acclamation of its accomplishments, the Navy was content to go on working quietly, systematically, and effectively. I have always averred that, by reason of the Fleet alone, Britain did her share and more than her share in the Great War. With- out our Navy the War would have been at an end after a rrionths duration at the out- side. The gigantic expenditure on our mighty Fleet has been more than justified. We swept the seas and held them against all unfriendly corners from the beginning of the War. With a weak British Fleet Germany wouId have played havoc with her foes. As for the impatient critics who stated that we had not been active enough, the result is a complete answer to their ignorant cavil- ling. They forgot that Nelson also maintained a lonely and trying vigilance, before the fleet for which he was waiting could be brought to battle. At that time there was no submarine problem to tackle. In the war that has been so successfully terminated the Navy not only retained the mastery of the seas, but was doing daiIy battle with this hidden menace, besides convoying food, soldiers, and munitions, not only for Great Britain but for her Allies. Until the end the British Fleet was eagerly waiting for the German Fleet should it venture outside its thoroughly mined lair. As we have seen, Germanys end justified the British means. I am indebted to my friend, Graeme Williams, F.R.Hist.S., F.R.G.S., F.G.S., for his labour of love in compiling the index to this book, and to Mr. J. A Hammerton for the wholesome Editorial appreciation.
