Set against the strict codes of conduct and manners of the age, it is the story of a father’s fight to clear his son’s name after the boy is expelled from Osborne Naval College for stealing a five-shilling postal order. To clear the boy’s name was imperative for the family’s honour; had they not done so, they would have been shunned by their peers and society. The boy’s life would have been wrecked by the stain on his character.
