Her captain had been advised to travel at high speed, with no lights and to remain close to the coast.

I have seen documentaries on TV were surviving officers criticised his decisions and referred to him as a "bedwetter", but I am not sure things are so easy to judge.
Oh well, one more night of bedwetting than last time. Still, the dry nights outnumber the wet nights, so that's not all bad. Feb.4 / 5 was a weekend sleepover at a friend's, who knows about the bedwetting (and was a bedwetter himself till the age of 12). I'm glad the boy's not missing out on the fun, for that would be a shame and wholly unnecessary!
As the rubber sheets were on all the beds, no boy would have to tell the staff that they might need one.
