Cadet Ronnie Winslow is expelled from the Royal Naval College accused of stealing a 5 shilling postal order. His father, Arthur, refusing to believe his guilt and dissatisfied with the manner in which the investigation was conducted, demands a new inquiry and fights tirelessly for his son's honour.
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. Similarly, the boy's life would have been wrecked by an indelible stain on his character which would have followed him throughout adulthood.
The play is based on a true story and explores the devastating effects on Ronnie’s family of the long fight for justice as money, promotion and romance are sacrificed in the determination to win at all costs.
