CHAPTER XVII - THINGS HAPPEN !

an unknown torpedo-boat-destroyer seen in the Tyne. It seems that it steamed into the river-mouth quite late one night, stayed in the anchorage by the pier for about half an hour, then without any warning slid off into the darkness with all her lights out."
" What was the coastguard doing ?" demanded Brewer.
" It seems that she gave them the correct signals and was flying the Naval Ensign, so they didn't suspect anything. But on checking up their reports with the Admiralty they found that no British ship ought to have been in the vicinity that night."
" That's queer, sir," said Brewer. " It makes you think of that other strange ship-that tramp steamer, you remember."
" By Jove, Brewer, I do !" cried Gerry. " I wonder what they were after ? However, it seems that some fishermen reported seeing a similar destroyer not far from Whitby later the same night ; and she was quite obviously a German ship, evidently bound for Heligoland. The skipper seems to have been pretty smart for he managed to pick out her number. It seems he is an R.N.R. man. Now we must wait for further reports to come in from our own people out there. They haven't told me what date it was seen."
" Do they expect you to solve this mystery too, sir ?" queried Brewer, who thought this young man had all his work cut out already.
" Not quite," laughed Gerry. " But they keep me Posted in case."
" In case of what, sir ? " asked Brewer.
But Gerry did not answer. He was staring at the report of the missing young draughtsman, Wilkinson.
" Well I'm damned," he swore. " That's the description of one of those dead bodies they found in Frenchman's Haven several months ago! "
