A Kat Production
In the midst of World War I, a severe shortage of qualified, available men led to your being brought out of retirement to serve as Headmaster of Brookfield School. You’ve managed to keep the school staffed despite a policy of only taking men who’ve attempted to volunteer and been rejected for service, have been discharged from the service or who are over the age limit for enlisting. One young teacher, though frail in appearance, has no obvious infirmity; in fact, he has a heart condition. Unknown to you, the older boys have been giving him a very bad time. Today he breaks down while teaching a class of sixth formers when a white feather falls from a book he is using. The culprit, Martin Grahame, is only too happy to take responsibility for the incident as a way of contrasting his bravery with Mr. Thorpe’s “cowardice”.
How will you deal with Martin Grahame, a 17-year-old boy you’ve always felt has great potential for leadership?
