The corvette HMS Redoubtable sets sail from Aden to go to Suez for inspection of a mysterious leak. Midshipmen Charlie and Harold look forward to a break in their routine hunting Arab slave traders and to have some fun ashore in Egypt. Yet even on land things aren’t always peaceful. Instead of merely sightseeing some pukka perils await the two friends.
