    Summary

    The war is over, and the Walkers, Blacketts and Callums are picking up their lives. John is back in England and decides to pay a visit to Titty.
    All fictional characters were created by Arthur Ransome. I have borrowed some ideas from other writers on this and other fan fiction sites, notably constantlearner, but the story deviates from directions taken by other writers. Thank you to all for your inspiration and sensitive responses to these wonderful characters.

    Summary

    Seven years after the end of the Second World War, Captain Nancy Blackett attempts to sail across the Atlantic single-handed, in her sloop The Wild Cat Island. Unsurprisingly, what she finds is not a simple crossing, but adventure with Smugglers, Parrots, and a Mysterious Package.

    Summary

Later in the same summer, Dorothea, Dick and Titty, along with the small Callums then revisit the Hebrides. (I've got Port and Starboard as Nell and Bess in by copy of coot club (not a first ed.) so went with Port being Nell and Starboard being Bess.) If I've got it wrong, I'm sorry.

    Summary

    Set spring/ summer 1938. With war increasingly likely, the Admiralty need updated charts of the Baltic Sea. Amateur yachtsmen and women are discretely asked to help with this, under the guise of leisurely pleasure cruising. The Swallow, Amazons and Callums are among them. Naval Lieutenant John Walker has been asked to do a little more than that and Nancy inevitably gets involved the task. Involves danger and some (not graphic) violence in a few chapters. A warning will be put at the start of any chapter with a fight. (I've had a complaint, via a different site, that I should have given a trigger warning for Nazis. I thought Berlin 1938 would be sufficient and that anyone who really needed that warning would know what the dates and place implied, or look it up, not just say they "couldn't be bothered to check." I was wrong. I still feel angry at the complainant's implied contempt for those who actually suffered contrasted with her extreme care for herself.)

    Summary

    This it the first part of a story I originally posted elsewhere as Pieces. That narrated events in chronological order. I decided to see if the story works better split into three connected sections not with every scene strictly chronological. If any reader has had the patience read the both versions, I would love to know which structure you prefer.
    In 1945, Dorothea's work at Bletchley Park has finished. She is wondering what happens next, but she isn't the only one.
