Fredy Neptune

A novel in verse on the adventures of a German-Australian sailor early this century, eg. "The first I heard that the War had really come / was a black-faced officer with a target and a church / on his cap, directing sailors to rip / our decks up, for the coal below. / I turned out of my hammock / to fight them--and our bos'un chucked me a shovel: / We're coaling that battlecruiser. / There! The English are after her!" By an Australian writer.
