I actually meant WWI. The paucity of references suggests that Ransome consciously steered clear of the war at all times. The acid test is Harwich, where naval officer and future naval officer sailed through waters steeped in very recent history without a single word on the subject. We can deduce that wherever Cdr Walker served, it was not at Harwich, or else the temptation would have been irresistible.

Incidentally E F Knight, who was such an influence on Ransome, wrote a popular account of the Harwich Force.
