The Naked Warriors is a short story in the Rags to Riches Series.
This story is about the life and loves Captain Paul Johnston. Paul is the elder brother of Bea, the woman in the life of the Uncovered Policeman. while he has not appeared in the series to date, although he has been mentioned, so this is the first time we meet him.
Paul has been sent on detachment to the Falkland Islands as part of the British Forces defending the Islands. He has just received three letters from three different women. This afternoon he has the free time to read them too.
“Captain Johnston, Paul Johnston, sat in the chair in his small room in the Officers Mess at RAF Mount Pleasant, the base for the RAF and British Army in the Falkland Islands. He had just received 3 letters, so he had collected a mug of coffee from the dining room and planned to read them all during the afternoon. Later that night he would be taking over as Duty Officer so until then he had a little quiet time to himself.
Interesting all three letters from women, if only two of them weren’t from his mother and his sister. The other one was from one of his former platoon commanders. He would save that one for last.”
I got to like Paul during this story. I am sure he will be back in Rags to Riches 4, not that I have started that book yet!
