Goodbye Old Chap' by Philip Algar is the story of Stanley Algar, (1899 - 1992), a captain on an oil tanker. He led a remarkable life and fortunately kept diaries meticulously, and, whilst a prisoner of war for many years, a war log. His diaries include a graphic and moving account of his liberation and his return to England to his family and a five year old son he had never seen. Philip, his son, a professional writer and author, has used his father's writings judiciously and added much social, economic and political research to provide a background to his father's life and times and fascinating details of a dramatic century that is already fleeing into history.
