Over the years I have tried to get the answers to the many, many questions that I have been asked regarding the RMS Titanic's Chief Purser Hugh Richard Walter McElroy, in doing this Autobiography and family research, the world can now know and hopefully understand Hugh, also I hope all those questions that have been asked over the years have now possibly been answered also if others wish to go further into speculation, like they have in the past, will find that there is no substitute for the truth, I hope that they will do their research rationally in locating the raw truth and with some regard to the simple fact that there are no villains in this story: just human beings with human characteristics. This book contains a large amount of unknown facts about the family and Hugh, regards his early life, His never before told regards his unknown life with the White Star Line; what happened to Barbara after Hugh died; Why did Hugh's sister Charlotte's name disappear so quickly from the Southampton Committee of the Titanic Relief Fund, in November 1914) after all she was a class "A" dependants. The loss of the R.M.S. Titanic created a debate that has raged ever since, and probably will do so for ever, It happened in 1912, prior to two world wars, long before television, indeed, long before the talking pictures. It was an era as different to today as one can imagine, It was a world quite unlike our present days in nearly every respect, yet this event has even the most modern child's attention when it is spoken of. It is a story and the effects of its happening endure, and will always endure, so long as humans remain human.

In his second collection of novellas, first published in 1957, Bates tackles bitter romantic deceptions and love triangles in what the Times Literary Supplement calls 'Mr Bates at his best.' In 'Night Run to the West' a greedy wife plots the death of her invalid husband, as seen through the eyes of her lover, a civilised truck-driver who has been innocently drawn into her web. 'Summer in Salander' involves an inert shipping clerk and an attractive, demanding woman who visits his island. Having left her own husband, she selfishly sets out to destroy the young man she meets while on holiday. Bates cites this story as a rare case in which a work of imagination is later simulated in real life, when a similar woman appeared on board a ship where Bates and his wife were returning to the island he used as the story's setting. 'The Queen of Spain Fritillary' looks back at a summer flirtation a woman pursued with an older man when she was seventeen. Bates portrays the pastoral setting of their romance, and the foolishness and thoughtlessness that characterised their relationship. Also included in this collection is bonus story 'Victim of Silence'. First published in the Daily Mail in 1939 it follows a young man, new to London, who is offered lodging in an ominous building. With just a torch for light, he encounters a fellow lodger, 'a war-crazy man with a gun in his hand.'

Many of his stories deal with ex­otic locales, usually Oriental. But even his Occidental tales are of interest, well written and fast paced, often with an unexpected twist or two. Also included are "The Mid-Watch Tragedy," a Jimmy Lavender detective story by Vincent Starrett, and "The Pearls of Paruki," by J. Allan Dunn. Another great issue!
