“The spirit of the English sea captians who roamed the seas in the age of discovery still lives in the men who guide the merchantmen to and from the British Ports. Great Britain owes her position as the leading sea carrier of international trade to the enterprise of her people. They grasped their opportunity when Britain found herself athwart the main trade routes between the Old World and the New.”
