Green coloured boards with gilt coloured titles to the back strip. Colour illustrated dustwrapper with light and dark blue coloured titles to the front panel and back strip. H. M. S. Constant was built in the middle of World War I, and was obsolete before she was launched. Her armament was only four six-inch guns. She was slated to be demolished and broken up just before 1939, then World War II broke out. H. M. S. Constant then became a training ground for new recruits. Then on a training run under a new captain, in the Shetland waters, she ran across the German pocket battleship Kaiser Wilhelm ....
