It was a proud day for him. “POLITICS AND DESTINY IN AMITY”, an essay competition for high school students, for which he had been responsible, had been run and judged and the authors of the 100 best entries were seated before him in the chamber.

Jellicoe smiled down at Samuel, then at his wife, and daughter, who were seated on either side of him. Three generations of Jellicoes, smiling up at him from the floor of the chamber where he was Commander In Chief.
