Kavanagh defends Lt. Ralph Kinross RN accused of starting a fire in a barracks. His co-accused is Jones, a childhood friend who is a sailor in the same unit, who had loaned money to the sailor whose bed was set on fire. Kavanagh's colleague Eleanor Harker QC is defending Jones but is also having problems at home. The defense focuses on the role of Chief Evans, the senior rating in charge of the engineering department, who was also Jones' main tormentor. In Chambers, Julia receives a proposal of marriage but has only a very short time to make up her mind. Written by

Although the medals of most of the naval characters were correct, those of CPO Evans were the wrong way around. The South Atlantic Medal (for the Falklands War) outranks the Royal Naval Long Service and Good Conduct Medal; and that's a matter of statute, not preference. See more
