Events affecting their lives, family relations, new home and the formation of the Israeli State are followed through various family members. A peacetime military is in the awkward position of being able to do none of the things, or at least none of the things in truly realistic circumstances, that it actually exists and trains to do. But Waverley had other objects of meditation, and an incident soon occurred of a nature to disturb meditation of any kind.

More information and a list of the other winners can be found here. In return for Hainaut’s support, Prince Edward would marry one of his daughters.
