General:
"Water is Best" appears on a temperance statue outside Bath Abbey. Water is, of course, very important to Bath. The Soapwort plant may be useful in Bath and the swings are usually found in a park - Green Park Station was once one of the principal stations in Bath. The fire is an illustration of the text and the badgers are included because the picture is set at night. The butterfly is a tortoiseshell. The Theatre Royal in Bath has a phantom butterfly which appears every year backstage. The sad teddy bear refers to Burrows Toy Museum which closed down during preparation of the book.
Key:
The roman numeral here is III (3) and the time is clearly shown to be 11 o'clock at night. Therefore the time is 23.00 hours. The 23rd word on the page is "only" which should be put into position 3 in the "key" message.
Boy's Name:
One of the things which should be given with a smile is service. The navy is the Senior Service so if the sailors are young, they cannot be senior, just service. The answer to this clue is SERVICE.
Article:
In Portsmouth we found the man who wrote about Mars. A man who composed music about Mars (and other planets) was Gustav Holst. If he is doing the opposite to composing he must be decomposing! Gustav Holst is buried in CHICHESTER.
