I can recommend Ashey Jackson's book. I also got his follow up "Ceylon at War 1939-1945". I found this less interesting with a large part being devoted to wartime life within Ceyon itself and the rest being a repeat, albeit in more detail, of the Ceylon related part of "Islands Ports and Sea Lanes". https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ceylon-193...ey+Jackson&s=books&sr=1-4&text=Ashley+Jackson I've also got his Persian Gulf Command awaiting my attention. I don't know what it is about Boyd. Every time I pick it up I can't seem to get beyond page 100.
