They Were Just Skulls

The Naval Career of Fred Henley, Last Survivor of HM Submarine Truculent.
Few people, even in the Navy, are even aware of this dreadful incident [the loss of submarine HMS Truculent in the Thames] and certainly not the details of human error that led to this huge loss of life. The account is gripping, and explains the strange title of the book.

John Johnson-Allen has put Fred Henley’s personal accounts in the context of world-changing events, and in particular provides a wonderful snapshot of the Royal Navy of that era.
• An incident-filled naval life during WWII seen through the eyes of a young man
• Features the tragic loss of HMS Truculent and includes eye-witness accounts from survivors
