Opening remarks[edit | edit source]
Do you ever get one of those days when everything goes right? You get a seat on the bus, you put a bob on an outsider, it wins a couple of quid and even the wife won't let you do the washing up. Well last time I had one it was on a Tuesday in 1928. But, you know, Admiralty they aren't having a good day today because it's the day the crew of H.M.S. Troutbridge return from leave to their ship now waiting for them in Portsmouth. And days don't come any worse than that.
