This sounds interesting: Somerville, James (1996). The Somerville Papers: Selections from the Private and Official Correspondence of Admiral of the Fleet Sir James Somerville, GCB, GBE, DSO. Navy Records Society, London. ISBN 978-1859282076.
Yes, it is. I borrowed a copy a while ago and made copies of certain pages. There is also the 1961 book "Fighting Admiral: The life of Admiral of the Fleet Sir James Somerville", by Donald Macintyre (I have a copy), but Sid refers to a memoir by Somerville, who died in 1949.

And that wouldn't be included in "The Somerville Papers"? Just wondering.

Well, if by "memoir" Sid simply means a report of a few pages in length written at the end of Somerville's term as head of the BAD in Washington and submitted to the Admiralty, then yes, it or a portion of it is most likely in The Somerville Papers. I suspect that is indeed what Sid means, but I just wanted to confirm if he is referring to something of that sort, or to some unpublished autobiography, i.e., Somerville's memoirs.
