"Janet, daughter of a university professor, had qualified as an Ordnance Wren.  Bill Duncan was a frogman sergeant in the Royal Marines.  He was an Australian, and this story is told by his brother Alan.  The war is over, Alan could not settle down and run his father's large farm in Australia.  He returned to Oxford to complete his course as a Rhodes scholar.  While in England he began his search for Janet Prentice, the girl to whom Bill had been more or less engaged."
