A Way With Words

Been reading (or rather re-reading) John Winton's "We Joined The Navy", one of a series of humorous books about sea life in the RN. I commend them to you.

I was somewhat amused by an expression he used (and I paraphrase as I can't find the relevant passage again): "Misfortune hung over George Dewberry, much as a halo over a saint."

Wonderful turn of phrase.
