Oldest Book in My Collection

I was inspired by another blog I stumbled upon that had a post showing their oldest military related book in their collection.  This evening I gave my book shelves a browse and discovered my oldest book is really not that old.  It is from 1922.

The book is titled Q-Ships and Their Story, by Edward Keble Chatterton.  The author in World War One joined the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve and later commanded a Motor Launch flotilla.  He seems to have written a number of books after the war.

I read this book many years ago, but I do remember that it is a good book.
