The Mids of the Rattlesnake

HMS Rattlesnake is anchored at Simons Town in South Africa. Some of her midshipmen go ashore for some innocent adventure. Little do they know of the dread perils and murderous pirates awaiting them in the Far East. And who wants to go ashore on a cannibal island, an island where man-eating savages are not a tale of the distant past, but very much alive – and hungry!
