For anyone wanting a good book about the Swordfish, look for War in a Stringbag by Charles Lamb

Hope we see this one in the future

The Swordfish relies on her Peggy
The modified Taurus ain't sound
The Swordfish flies off on her mission
The ALbacore stays on the ground

Bring back
Bring back
Bring back my stringbag to me


I haven't read "War in a Stringbag" for years but I still remember most of the song. I also enjoyed "Terror in the Starboard Seat" for the nitty gritty of Mosquito ops.
