From Dartmouth College to the thick of the Second World War aboard a British fighting ship, Midshipman Tom Dowling kept a Journal describing all that happened around him. So, of course, did many other young men, but Tom Dowling’s extraordinary observational skills, his ability to relate what he saw and his huge artistic talent sets him aside from the rest – and make this Midshipman’s Journal such an important document.

 

It takes us back nearly 70 years and brings to vivid life the experiences of war which Tom and his comrades underwent – escorting convoys, outwitting enemy submarines and being bombed by Stukas, all illustrated at the time with amazing drawings and action paintings.

 

The contemporary Journal is remarkable enough, but Tom has since produced explanatory notes and observation, not only giving us a truly valuable insight into a Midshipman’s experiences, but a rounded view of naval life as Britain and her allies fought for supremacy across the oceans of the world.

 

The journal is surely a treasure trove for the serious historian and a source of wonder to the lay-reader.
