Two young lads have just met for the first time. Both are in naval uniform, both on national service. They are startled by the coincidence of how much alike they look. Headily conscious of each other’s and their own beauty, they are primed and ready to fall in love…
They were both on leave for the first time in a strange city when they met. It didn’t go well at first, but then later…
…and who knew it would last so long and so well, even fifty years on they’re still surprised.
