There is a good rail and bus service from Stanstead to London, and the Natives are pretty friendly!! The tube system will get you around the city.

You could also try the Ian Allan bookshop which is just round the corner (literally) from Waterloo Rail Station. Unfortunately it deals far more with trains (yawn! Sorry!) than ships, but you can get a few shipping ones in there.

Hi,does anyone recognise a book about the exploits of a scottish trampship engineer.
Published a long time ago and,I think,was acollection of short stories written originally
for the Saturday Evenng Post.The name Glencannon comes to mind although whether this was the name of the author or the character I don't recall.I do recall,though,that this was a very amusing read and typicall of the era.Thanks.Pierhead Jumper.

You're thinking of the Glencannon series by Guy Gilpatric. See the website below:

It was also a TV series in the 50's starring Thomas Mitchell.

If you know the name of the book or ISBN No the the following site will most likely locate an outlet for you. I seaches the world list for the books requested both new, secondhand and out of print.

There’s some good second-hand bookshops around the alleyways of Leicester square Tube station, and I think the big bookshop in town is Foyle’s, for cheap good books have look out for a shop called works, some good bargains to be had in there you are not near to the tube in that area but a decent Bus service to London bridge, Waterloo and Victoria,
Need any help at a later date, send me a mail

Hi,Phill,thanks for the advice but I don't think that I'll ever get to London again,too bloody old to be tramping around.However,I have located the book I was seeking at
Internet Bookshop UK via website Abebooks.Thanks to all who replied.Pierhead Jumper.

Another couple of good search sites are www.AddALL.com which works on the title or author or keyword and www.BookFinder.com ,works on author or title; there are some good bookshops down at Greenwich if you are planning to visit the Cutty Sark or the maritime museum
