[printed clipping] No news has been received from Walter Skelton Since he joined the Navy, so he has probably been put in irons for mutiny. For the good name of the Royal Navy it is to be hoped that he will not be posted to the same ship as Miroy-- what a ship with Miroy, steering from the lower deck and Skelton getting a good leg drive in the engine room!

We understand that Miroy has discovered that Frank Victor is not the only one in the " Harry " family who can express himself forcibly and without repetition, and that such verbal chastisement comes easier from a rowing coach that from a Commander R.N.

Poly. Mag. June 1941
