You’ll enjoy Pook and Honners in the Indian Navy, savouring the sweet life of the
East. Honners breaks with naval tradition by opening a boarding-house in Bombay,
providing a base for his ever-growing collection of war trophies.
But that ruthless disciplinarian, Commander Bray, brings the war against Japan to
their notice, and they experience the terrors of night convoy sailing. Here Pook
becomes the first Navigating Officer ever to witness the sun rising in the west without
another ship of the convoy in sight.
Pook and Honners are selected to lead the landing party on the Ramsami beach-head,
where they come under fire from the Japanese and their own Task Force. How they escape
the Japanese by working in a Ramsami house of ill-fame is a hilarious climax to another
extremely funny Pook book.
