Hornblower: The Frogs and the Lobsters


and Catherine and-

request the attendance of their

captains in one hour.

Mr. Hornblower, my compliments

to the senior officers.

I will see them in my cabin

in 20 minutes.

-Aye, sir.

-So, Mr. Hornblower, what news?

I know no more than you,

Mr. Bracegirdle.

Well, I expect we shall find out.

By the way, I think you have a splash

of mud on your jacket.

You look every inch the new

lieutenant, Mr. Hornblower.

Long may it remain so.

Gentlemen,the captain's compliments

and he will see-

-all officers in his cabin in

20 minutes.

-What is this?

Gentlemen, it appears we have

a stranger in our midst.

No, no, I'm mistaken.

It's Lieutenant Hornblower,

from top to toe a new man.

And not a patch in sight.

Indeed it is,

acting Lieutenant Kennedy.

Gentlemen, it appears that

Mr. Hornblower is now the standard-

by which we must all measure


All right, all right, that's enough.

Thank-you, Mr. Bowles.

Oi, watch it.

What do you reckon the orders

will be then, eh?

-Stay here and take it easy.

-Not unless the captain-

-has gone soft.

-Naw, pity though.

I could just do with another month

on fresh rations.

Maybe we'll be sent to the Indies,eh?

How about that?

-Palm trees, sunshine.

-Tropical diseases.

It could be the Med again,

have another go at them Dagos.

Yeah, we could go back, give them

another pasting easy. Do it-

on our own too, leave the rest

of the fleet in the Channel.

Oi, Fanny Fearless, 'missed a bit


-Behind you.


Gentlemen, as you are no doubt aware,

I have lately returned from a meeting

with Admiral Hood.

Our orders are to join the ships

Catherine,Dunbarton and Sophia

and convey a General Charette,

together with forces comprising-

of French Royalist troops and

British infantry,

to the coast of France.
