Abstract: Nicholas John Turney Monsarrat, son of a distinguished surgeon, was born in Liverpool in 1910. The family had a holiday home in Anglesey and it was there that early in his life he fell in love with the sea and with sailing. After getting a law degree from Cambridge he decided that the solicitor's career for which he was being trained did not suit him. He went to London where he tried to make a living writing novels and journalistic pieces such as a regular restaurant review that supplied him with one good meal a week At this time he was an ardent left-winger politically and helped to sell The Daily Worker. As a pacifist he took part in processions in favour of pacifism.
