Everybody Down - The Navy Lark Wiki

Opening remarks[]

Just about the most disastrous thing that can happen to any man is to wake up and find the day has started well. The wife's in a good mood, the papers he ordered have arrived, the sun's shining, the kettle for his first cup of tea boils in seconds and even the yolk of the egg for his breakfast doesn't split in half when the shell is cracked. Far too good to last and once he gets to the office the bubble is going to burst. For Captain Povey as he settles in his imitation, plastic leather chair in his office at Portsmouth today is one of those days.
