" I'm afraid there is going to be a lot more than that to worry about soon," said Gerry sternly.
Then he briefly told his father all about the strange things he had heard lately, and especially the behaviour of the Commander.

" I'm sorry myself, too," said Gerry. " But the truth is, Father-and I can trust you-things are happening up here which no one can understand, and they have got the wind up badly at H.Q.
