Spider joins the navy at the height of the early eighties recession because he needs the work and he thinks life on board ship will be a laugh. And for the first six months he's right: it's great fun when you're 17, cruising round the Mediterranean, getting drunk in every port. But then the Argentinians invade South Georgia and suddenly the British Navy is at war. Spider's never even heard of the Falklands, but that's where he's going. A funny, poignant and fast-paced play by a writer who himself served in the task force.
