Title: Across Far Distant Horizons: The Life and Times of a Canadian Master Mariner.
Description: Vancouver, Cordillera Publishing. 1995, First Edition. (ISBN: 1895590132) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 311 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs, drawings. "This book is based on the unpublished and private memoirs of Captain Trevor Whitla Bridges, late of the Canadian and British Merchant navies, and also of the British Royal Navy Reserve and the Royal Canadian Navy Reserve, in which he held the rank of Lieutenant-Commander. The narrative proper is always in the first person singular, as this closely follows the original text, but in my periodic comments in sidebars on aspects of his career or circumstance of which he was a part, I have invariably chosen to give him his appropriate navy or merchant navy rank at the time." From the Introduction. Contents: Introduction; An Anglo-Canadian Childhood; Training Ship Worcester; The Barque Invermay of Aberdeen; Bound for Vancouver; The Nitrate Coast; British India; Goodbye B.I.; Working for a Master's Ticket; Return to the Royal Line; 1914: "The Northern Patrol", Monitors and Troopships; Trampship Captain; At War Again; Appendix; Index.
