Helpful Hints


1965, dead centre of the 60's decade, a decade of youthful anarchy, of drunkness and debauchery. There were over 100,000 Sailors in the Royal Navy and they had no wars to fight, it was an incredible period of peace for the Force. So what did they do? This novel sheds some light on that question. It focuses on a very small number of Sailors, serving on a very small ship, whilst undergoing the Work Up at Portland, in Dorset, England, which was a requirement of every Ship before it joined the Fleet. It was a time when the only thing PC stood for was a Pint Of Cider, a time before suspenders had gone out of fashion, but mini-skirts were in, it was a time of sex and sedition, of drunkeness and debauchery. This novel is extremely rude, the main character is rude about everything and to everyone, so if you are easily offended, please feel free to be offended by it.
