There was quite a wind as we waited along the sea wall. I was glad of it as that would explain my tears though why I’d be worried I couldn’t say. Nobody would be looking at me. Those wives and sons, mothers and sweethearts would all be looking away from shore. And they wouldn’t notice my tears anyway, or if they did they’d take them for joy or relief that the ship, all its crew safe, was pulling into harbour.
