Do take another look at my web site on the eve of the anniversary of the sinking of HMS HECLA and the rescue of 500 survivors by HMS VENOMOUS.

See WHAT'S NEW at: [www.holywellhousepublishing.co.uk]

There is a lot more information and some wonderful new photographs of HMS HECLA provided by George Male and the grandson of Jabez Skelhorne, one of the unlucky ones who died after their rescue by VENOMOUS, and were buried at sea while en-route from Casablanca to Gibraltar.

And at last the full story of Warrant Officer Jimmie Button, the anti-submarine Boatswain who saved the lives of many of the survivors only to die himself as a result of is exertions, is told.

More than half of the 1,000 copies of A HARD FOUGHT SHIP I had printed have been sold.

A Hard Fought Ship: the story of HMS Venomous;
by R.J. Moore and J.A. Rodgaard.
