This is the true story of a young man and his family experiencing life in Gibraltar in the 1960s, at a time when the relationship with the Spanish authorities was somewhat uneasy. It demonstrates the interplay between the British Gibraltarians and Spanish workers in the Royal Dockyard, highlighting different attitudes, as well as the interplay within the hierarchy that existed. Charles Toye was sent on a three-year tour as an Inspector of Shipwrights by the Ministry of Defence. It details the working of the North Yard to undertake the refits of various naval and commercial ships and relates some of the problems involved to achieve their completions.

The book also tells how the author's wife adapted to life in Gibraltar alongside other British wives - from daily living, to days out, holidays, sporting activities and special occasions.

The story Found Out is a light-hearted story of an arrogant and rather good-looking young man playing the field in the Edinburgh area. His escapades get out of hand and all is revealed; thus he is forced to face the consequences from a number of angry women.
