Fourteen-year old Royal Naval College cadet Ronnie Winslow is accused of the theft of a five-shilling postal order. An internal enquiry, conducted without notice and without the benefit of representation, finds Ronnie guilty and his father Arthur is instructed to withdraw him from the College.
The older Winslow believes Ronnie’s claim of innocence and, with the help of solicitor Desmond Curry, attempts to clear Ronnie’s name.
