Another Local Novel. "Three came unarmed" by E. Arnot Robertson.
E. Arnot Robertson was born 1929. Mafalda Tapp writes: "Mersea features strongly with an accurate description of The Hard and Coast Road. One local recalls having "Little Old Ginger" as she was called, to tea on board their yacht MARJORIE moored in Thornfleet.
James Clarke, father of Ben Clarke, built a sailing dinghy for Miss Robertson in Rowhedge.
She had many boy-friends. She married Charles Turner - she and her husband sailed in a Payn Clark designed yacht LONA IV. Another novel "Four Frightened People" featured Pin Mill.
