The National Maritime Museum's Caird Library (well worth a visit if you're in London) has a copy. Your local library should be able to borrow a copy from the British Library.

Sadly it is out of print.

thanks thingy :thumright:

bit gutted they have ran out of prints :( will try the local library .
It was a popular book but published by John Douglas who died last December. Perhaps his son will facilitate a future re-publication, but then again, the numbers of ex-Ganges boys is on the wane and the number of interested other parties somewhat limited.
