'Last of the Wooden Walls - An Illustrated History of the Ton Class Minesweepers and Minehunters' is now on sale. 119 of these much-loved post-war ships were built (including the GRP-constructed HMS Wilton) and tens of thousands of RN and RNR officers and sailors cut their teeth in them all over the world. Published by Halsgrove in association with the TCA, this 160-page A4-sized hardback tome contains a foreword by the TCA's Patron, HRH The Prince of Wales, and will be launched at the Royal Naval Museum in Portsmouth Naval Base on 9 March 2012 to mark the TCA's 25th Anniversary. It has a cover price of £24.99 but is available for £19.99 if pre-ordered via Halsgrove's website here. 'Jacks of All Trades', a companion volume containing a photo and history of each TON Class ship, is being published privately by the TCA and will be available at the same time. All royalties from the sales of both books will be going to the TCA, not to any individuals.
