Sir William was aboard HMS Garland when she was involved in Nyon Patrols during the Spanish Civil War. They were also involved with transferring prisoners from the mainland to the Balearics. It’s whilst HMS Garland is patrolling off Somaliland that war breaks out and he recalls his Captain’s dead pan reaction to the news.
