Once again, a perfectly written story! With a wonderful well thought out story line. Clearly written with great dialogue which I have very much enjoyed. If you read it, I am sure you will enjoy it too.

This is a great story all about a young man who is in the Australian Navy. While on foreign tour he has an accident in which he is injured because the APC he was in was hit with a IED. Because of the work he was doing for the Navy he has a high security clearance and he has to notify the government before he makes any kind of trip outside the waters around Australia. While recouping from his injuries he goes to Christmas Island with his nephew for 2 weeks, unfortunately the trip is cut short, they don’t make it off the island for almost a month due to the trouble on the island. I suggest that you read the story to find out more about what goes on. If you like fiction stories then this is a great story to read.

This is another fantastic story from @quokka.

This story features naval commander Lewis Shaw, it follows all of his adventures after he recovers from his injuries from an IED. As with all of his story this feature great locations, boat’s all written about in great detail, it also features some characters from another of his stories. There is a surprise at the end, and it is a beautiful ending. I highly recommend reading this story.
