a must read for anyone interested in the trade union movement or in the class struggle that went on in the early 1900s and through the 1st world war. also an insight into the poverty that led to the need for a union for seamen and the attitude of ship owners.
this man's name should be better known in the annals of working mens struggle against extreme poverty and exploitation.
very readable too.
