This is a pastoral idyll of a bomber base! The bomber crew who are the central characters are ardent, though rather amateurish, fishermen, from the pilot captain down. Their enthusism has been one factor welding them into a team that has accomplished some fifty odd operations, virtually unscathed. Enter Gervase, homesick WAAF officer, who puts her job first but finds her heart won by the pilot's ingenuous admiration, and gives him 'the gate' - at cost to them both. A charmingly told tale of young love in the midst of war.
