ENGLAND EXPECTS! by Steve Tolmie

£5.00

A Comedy – After Trafalgar, on its way to burial in St Paul’s Cathedral, was Nelson’s body guarded overnight in a barn near the sleepy seaside village of Fogmouth? Modern day Fogmouth council leader Angela Christie certainly hopes so: she needs a good story to get the tourists coming back to her ailing town. Angela looks to a cantankerous local resident and eccentric historians for help uncovering the truth. Meanwhile, back in 1805, a trio of hapless sailors have lost the barrel that contained the Admiral’s body. Will anyone, ancient or modern, find what they are looking for?
