In 1965 there were over 100,000 Sailors in the Royal Navy, but there were no wars to fight, it was a reasonably peaceful decade for the Force. So what did the Sailors do? This novel will provide some answers. It focuses on a very small number of Sailors, on a very small ship, doing a Work Up at Portland, in Dorset, which was a requirement of every ship before it was qualified to join the Fleet.
