WEMYSS, Commander D.E.G. Walker's Groups in the Western Approaches … With a Forword by Admiral Sir Max Horton. Liverpool, Daily Post & Echo Ltd., [1945].

8vo. Original blue cloth, lettered and decorated in gilt, dust-wrappers (not price-clipped), map endpapers; pp. 172 on high-quality laid paper, plates after photographs; very light fraying to wrappers, two old ownership inscriptions; otherwise very good.
First edition. Written by the second in command of the Western Approaches Groups of anti-submarine vessels in the Atlantic, this is a gripping account of this rather successful Navy operation led by Frederick John Walker, who had died in 1944.
