The Saltness of Stanlock is a quirky comedy-drama of the exploits of Morton Stanlock: a crusty, but kindly, senior seadog struggling to come to terms with retirement from the Senior Service. His favoured haunt in an unfamiliar world is the Warriors' Welfare charity shop, managed by formidable ex-investigator Josephine, for whom he has a covert fondness. At Warriors' Welfare Stanlock is reunited with his former nemesis Gabriel: a disgraced soldier and they engage in geriatric fisticuffs amidst the bric-a-brac. While Josephine attempts Gabriel's rehabilitation, Stanlock's orderly world is shattered by a false accusation of serious wrongdoing. The Warriors' Welfare ex-military team unite in helping him to clear his name. Ultimately worldly wisdom, or as Shakespeare has it "the saltness of time", prevails and true comradeship unites the Warriors in a finale with a remarkable outcome.
