"I was chatting to my father-in-law about this book the other week. He has recently retired but worked for the MoD his whole working life. I have no idea what he did, I think it was a case of 'if I tell you I have to kill you'. All I know is that it was to do with submarines (Trident and Polaris). Anyhow, I got this email from him the other day"
"Bought the submarine book you mentioned - 'Being Silent They Speak' - on Amazon last week and was impressed. If you are still in contact with David Smith, he is to be congratulated on a job well done; it will be a great read when I can do it full credit. I'm not surprised Admiral Sir James Perowne wrote a forward for him. Sir James is a real submariner himself and visited our office some years ago when we worked for him at the Naval Staff in London".
So, David Smith,
congratulations on a job well done :-)
David J.B. Smith
