“Wooden ships and iron men!” That was what they called Britain’s old navy, the navy of Nelson, the navy of taut canvas, of creaking rigging, of muzzle-to-muzzle gun-battles on all the seven seas.
There were no such things in the Second World War of course. Or were there? Yes, there was the schooner Java Queen! She was old and most of her crew were boys, not men, but never did any ship in the navy put up a fight like she did!
