To get your own personal copy of No-Badge Killick, please fill out the e-mail form on the right and send me a message indicating how many copies of the book you would like and your mailing address. I will then e-mail you an invoice.

Using a link on the e-mail invoice, customers are able to complete the transaction securely with a credit or debit card on-line.   I use Square to process purchases which makes it simple and secure. Square handles the transaction so I never see your credit card number.

Alternatively you can use PayPal - my account is connected to my e-mail address at or if you prefer to pay by cheque, let me know ans I will e-mail my address then simply send me a cheque in the mail. You are not charged a fee — no matter how you pay.

I realize that the process is a touch more complicated than buying from Chapters or Amazon but not much. As an independent publisher I am forced to handle my own distribution.

The cost of the book is $20.00 which includes free shipping.

Your order will be processed as soon as I receive payment.

What Reader Had to Say About No-Badge Killick

Congratulations Your book stands as a testimony for all the told and untold stories of our time. We contributed more than the Canadian people know…more of that story needs to be shared.

I was there yet you still took me back into the life of the sailor in the sixties. An easy read, not too technical, it explained things in a way to help non-service people understand.

I remember the days so well, homesick, seasick, dear john letters, all the hangovers and the waking up after wishing it would all go away.

Found the book very interesting from a sailor’s point of view. It was a pleasant and interesting read.

Seems like only yesterday. So young and full of piss and vinegar

As one sailor to another thanks for writing about your time in the Navy. I did 27 years and don't regret a minute of it - well maybe one or two.

Best savoured with a drink of rum

Read mine in three days. I had to force myself to put it down.

Read mine in a week-long. I like your story telling style which makes it so easy to read.

Having served alongside of you, I can actually remember some of those incidents. Well done Gord

I am now waiting for the sequel, I am certain you have plenty more stories up that sleeve without the good conduct badge.

...the least I can do is get the book since you took a pierhead jump for me in 69.

Not bad writing for a kid from Grand-mère!!! Loved it. I was on watch on the Saguenay when the Kootenay blew up, it was 50 years ago or so, Thanks Gordon for the reading

a very engrossing read

You have a remarkable memory - either that or you are very good at making things up. Everybody wants this book.
