    Summary

    This it the first part of a story I originally posted elsewhere as Pieces. That narrated events in chronological order. I decided to see if the story works better split into three connected sections not with every scene strictly chronological. If any reader has had the patience read the both versions, I would love to know which structure you prefer.
    In 1945, Dorothea's work at Bletchley Park has finished. She is wondering what happens next, but she isn't the only one.

    Summary

    Set spring/ summer 1938. With war increasingly likely, the Admiralty need updated charts of the Baltic Sea. Amateur yachtsmen and women are discretely asked to help with this, under the guise of leisurely pleasure cruising. The Swallow, Amazons and Callums are among them. Naval Lieutenant John Walker has been asked to do a little more than that and Nancy inevitably gets involved the task.
    Involves danger and some (not graphic) violence in a few chapters. A warning will be put at the start of any chapter with a fight.
