Drink Up and Be a Man

Memoirs of a steward and engine-room hand. Special Offer - 50% off

Born into poverty in Ireland in the 1940s, John J. Mahon stands only 4ft 9in tall. He went to sea as a steward on a passenger liner aged 17, and later served in various ships as a donkeyman, greaser and engine-room hand. During twenty years at sea, he overcame his sense of inferiority but not the lure of alcohol - until he came ashore. This is his story.
