Book description
Herbert was an MP for the University of Oxford. He was a law reformer, librettist, author, and public figure. Yet he still found time to enlist as a Petty Officer and take his six-ton boat Water Gipsy into the Navy. He spent six very active years combining his various careers with war service on the Thames, patrolling, towing, fetching, and carrying.
