It is 1914. As war engulfs the British Empire, Royal Navy gunner, George Royal awaits his next ship in his home port where his best friend has fallen in love with beautiful Carrie, a woman with secrets. When she is attracted to George, she brings the two men into conflict. Britain’s leadership is being severely tested – so the parallel story of a besotted Prime Minister reflects the realities of George’s war. Full of Historical Naval detail with a strong WW1 story line of changing social moralities.

Following the success of Two Up, in Two Up Down Under, Ron and Jim enjoy a road trip around Canberra and the Riverina in Jim’s 50-year old VW Kombi, Miss October. As well as the journey and the story of Miss October, there are over 190 original photos mostly in colour with a focus on both flying and on vintage aircraft in Australia.
