Excerpt

and the tide was almost down, and I might at least see how they were getting on. So, my hoe and my boots in my hand, I went down the steep path, and strode along the shore. And, as I came nearer that place which is ever near my heart--where the sod breaks off to the sand just above my clam beds--I thought I got a glimpse of drapery behind a tree-trunk.

Plot bullets


  • Submarine? There is none, and most likely will never be one in such a shallow bay, but WWI rages beyond it.

  • The Clammer can only imagine, as he lives in relative safety on the bay, as he is over the military age.

  • He fights an inward battle as he remains onshore, when others work, fight ad die for their country.

  • The man and his conscience are, The Clammer and the Submarine.
