This play revolves around a young innocent recruit into the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic wars. It concentrates on his attitude to his fellow shipmates and the new adult life that he has been suddenly thrust into. This play seeks to immerse readers into the main character's transition from boy to man, warts and all, the whole story semi fictitiously wrapped up in humorous but earthy narrative.
