Alan, your post kicks the old brain into action. It's been a very long day. I have had a few beers
and I have a number of thoughts which TarBoarders of a gentle disposition may find disturbing:
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
i) Did I read the SA series from a different perspective - and hence read more into certain passages -
because I was a part of the post WWII Polish diaspora and regarded the British Government 's
actions with respect to my country as daft?
ii) Is the GA just an Edwardian hangover, or is she a symbol of an authority that has become disconnected
from those it seeks to 'look after'?
iii) Is Mr Farland allowing class prejudices to overrule logic and common sense? (I found BS deeply
disturbing when I read it as a child and I am still deeply upset by the way nearly everyone turns
against the D&Gs.)
iv) Given that Commander Walker is in the RN, and John intends to follow in his footsteps, why are
there no references to Britain's glorious naval history?
v) Why does John run Swallow as a Merchant ship, rather than a Naval vessel?
