CHAPTER III - THE BODY ON THE SANDS

In company with the foreigner, who had caused such a stir in their midst, lived Colonel and Mrs. Kenton, the Commander and Mrs. Finch, the Peabodys-the local solicitor and his wife, and quite a collection of Army officers, who were stationed at the Garrison with their families, and R.N. men connected with the secret defences of the Tyne and the North Sea. Tynemouth at this time was a very important part of the Defences of the North of England. Tyneside itself was a large factor in the production and manufacture of big guns and battleships. It was also a huge centre of the coal industry, and its shipbuilding yards were known throughout the world. It needed all the protection it could get, and the Garrison, with all its string of attendant accessories, had this very important work entrusted to it.
Amongst the " attendant accessories " one had to include " wives "; and it was they who provided the life and entertainment of the Colony. It did not take Herr Durkheim long to find the way into their good graces-especially as he was a bachelor. His dinnerparties soon became famous, and in spite of the remarks some of them made about him behind his back, they all clamoured for invitations to his parties during the next few months.
After all, there was a drawback about the man, though no one had ever been able to describe it. It was something they " felt " rather than saw. His appearance was presentable enough. His build was quite the average, his face was perhaps rather pallid, but he had a smartly trimmed beard (worn Navy fashion) of a distinctly auburn tint which matched his pale colouring. Having spent a considerable time out in West Africa, he had been left with a slight weakness of the eyes which necessitated his wearing glasses-these were slightly tinted with dark lenses to protect his eyes from any bright light. Perhaps that
