Fullerton, Alexander - No Man's Mistress. Peter Davies. 1955 August reprint (2nd impression).
... The action, of which there is no lack, takes place on board H.M.S. Pelorus, a cruiser stationed in the Mediterranean during the period when the army was hard pressed in the Libyan desert and the fate of Malta hung in the balance. To those stirring days James Wentworth, retired and a farmer, looks back - more than that, they return to hem with a peculiar intensity through an all-night conversation with Peter Tregarth (now in command of a submarine) whom he seeks out at the Annual Summer Ball at Fort Blockhouse. Peter Tregarth and he, had been midshipmen together in the Pelorus; and Peter Tregarth and he, without realising it, shared a strange personal secret which forms the underlying theme and eventual denouement of No Man's Mistress. ...
