Finish the story begins with: “The crew of the Angel Flame received orders to head out.”
It had been a surprise order and Seaman Sean was concerned about the sub’s colour scheme.
Anyone who studied camouflage one-o-one knew that orange was not the colour to hide from the enemy.
He thought they would be sitting ducks which bothered him as only the week before he had written to his mother about some ducks he’d seen in the park.
Even in the deepest part of the ocean the orange would light up on anyone’s sonar.
Had they been going into the jungle the black and orange would have worked a treat.
So it was a matter of cross all fingers and toes and hope for the best.
So they chugged their way out of the harbour, while a pod of dolphins followed them.
Sean was sure he saw them laughing.
