HMS Saracen by Douglas Reeman
A BBC Radio dramatisation in two parts.
Part 1 - The Midshipman
First broadcast as a Saturday Night Theatre presentation on Radio 4 on 22nd April 1972.
HMS Saracen is a monitor, a type of ship already obsolete when it was launched and now almost entirely forgotten. Nevertheless, Saracen is Richard Chesnaye's first ship, and it is aboard her that he makes a name for himself during the Gallipoli campaign.
Part 2 - The Captain
First broadcast on 29th April 1972.
Twenty-five years later, both the ship and the man are recalled to active service during Hitler's war. And while few people are willing to say anything good about the ugly old ship, Chesnaye sees an opportunity to prove the old girl still has one more heroic act left.
