The updated edition brings the story right up to date, as of Autumn 2021. It now has a technical appendix describing the equipment of Caroline’s ships and the land based facilities. The pagination is now up to 558 pages.
The story is packed with disasters, boardings, excitement and the usual copious amounts of skull-duggery covering events from Radio Caroline’s four eras. Told by many of the key people who made Radio Caroline happen, this book gives a platform to the station managers, secretaries, and others who are usually in the shadows. Their unique aspects help put the flesh on the true story of what is the world’s best known radio ship.
Unique content & many ‘never published before’ photos among the 350 illustrations. It’s chronologically correct, fully indexed and will surely become a real collector’s item. The book’s gorgeous full-colour cover shows the ship in all her magnificence with her huge tower clawing high into the sky.

Book Cover and Poster
The book is unique in that it is a solidly made, hand-finished, hardback. It also has a superb picture of the Ross Revenge on its front cover, rather than the traditional non-colour library style solid cover. "Fotoflyte took such a fabulous picture of the Ross Revenge with the Olau Brittania ferry cruising pas and we had it available to us at high resolution, so the chance of remembering the Ross Revenge, in all her magnificence, with one of her friends sailing pas, for size comparison, made it I'm possible to resist," said Paul.
The shot was taken in the second week of august, 1987, just after the UK increased its Territorial Waters to 12 miles, making the former and protected anchorage in the Knock Deep inside UK jurisdiction. This meant the ship had to moved out to a mooring near the South Falls Head, a more exposed spot and closer to shipping lanes.
It was the wild weather two months later that weakened the tower on the Ross Revenge, causing it to fall into the sea a couple of weeks later. It was also the heavy seas at that location that tore the Ross Revenge from her anchor four years later, and there her up onto the Goodwin Sands.
