Reviews of IN THE NORTHERN MISTS
“Nothing, so far as one can remember, gives as good an idea as this book does of life in the Royal Navy in time of war.”—World.
“Full of intimate touches, and full of good stories of quarter-deck and lower-deck.... The Padre is a man of infinite humour, as all truly religious men are.

“The unnamed Padre ... tells us a great deal about the little ways of the Services, the psychology of its members, and the spirit that animates them; and always in a style so entertaining as well as sympathetic that these pages from his note-hook should prove one of the most popular and appreciated of books that the war has directly or indirectly inspired.”—Scotsman.
