In defence of Mr Farland, he is the solicitor to Mr Sonning of Potter Heigham; and also that initially the Death & Glories think that Tom cast off the cruiser at Jonnatt’s and vice versa: Tom said to them "What on earth made you do it? I couldn’t help doing it to the “Margoletta …." And Joe says "We thought it was you" (BS2).

Dr Dudgeon commented later "to hear our good policeman talk, you’d think poor Frank (Farland) was in league with the boys himself" (BS24). And later Mr Farland is interested when George O. says "they hadn’t got a camera" (how did George know that, and for that matter why he was interested in whether they had a camera?). This is after Ralph says they let off a "great flare … we couldn’t help seeing them" and George gave him an angry look (BS32).
