'Ship girls' are the subject of this episode of the NZBC’s Probation Service drama. Hapless Janice (Freda Costley), a 19-year-old with a father who moved to Whakatane and a mother she doesn’t see if she can help it, is looking for love in the wrong places: sneaking onto the wharves to party with sailors in the hope she’ll find a boyfriend. Now the police have arrested her and, if she’s not careful, she’ll end up in borstal. Will the Probation Officers (Ewen Solon and Glynis McNicholl) be able to "stop her gangway habit becoming an addiction"?

Idle, disorderly, vagrant, Vera was and probably still is. A ship girl but a ship girl with the proverbial heart of gold and lots of good sense with it – although about the only thing Vera learned from us was that when society makes the rules, it pays to appear to keep them.
– Hugh Laking (Ewen Solon)
