Raised on Estonian islands in the Baltic Sea, Captain Mender worked
on ships from London to ports worldwide and ended up in Vladivostok
on Imperial Russia's Far Eastern Coast. Standard Oil hired him in
1919 to transport oil products on China's Yangtze River. Mender
retired after surviving the bombing and sinking of his ship during
the 1937 U.S.S. Panay incident. A Navy Expeditionary Medal
recipient, his memoirs illuminate a nautical life of a bygone era.
