    CHAPTER 1. It was a long way from the sea and the lash of bright silver spray over the plunging bow of a warship: as the sun climbed high above the fells, bringing to a rich bronze the autumn tints on wood and grassland, Lieutenant St Vincent Halfhyde shaded his eyes and looked towards the spectacular immensity of Whernside in the distance.   aka Robert Conington Galway, Duncan MacNeil Philip McCutchan () grew up in the naval atmosphere of Portsmouth Dockyard and developed a lifetime's interest in the sea. Military history was an early interest resulting in several fiction books, from amongst his large output, about the British Army and its campaigns, especially in the last years.,/5(2).

    Halfhyde has been called back to the colors in the Boer War to guard a consignment of naval gunnery and gold bullion being sent to help General Buller lift the siege of Ladysmith.

    Halfhyde quickly deduces that he will have to protect the madly blustering admiral from his own crew as well as from the bomb-throwing terrorists. Subplots include Watkiss's plan for a Salvation Navy, the assault of the admiral's grim, widowed sister on a bachelor clergyman, and Victoria Penn's assault on anyone who crosses her path. The last two Halfhyde novels are out and out humorous farces with Watkiss front and center. In the present book, we have Halfhyde and Watkiss headed to Chile to upset the machinations of the German Admiral von Merkatz. This they manage to do in fine fashion. This is the first Halfhyde novels to prominently feature the nation of Chile.
