On the night of 20 / 21 December, well after midnight.
Eastern Australian Time (Greenwich + 10 hours)
I was a middle-level ship's officer, and had taken part in a mutiny, in Australian colonial days (about 1800). It was now the job of us, as mutineers to pass ourselves off as the legitimate crew of the ship.
We made a landfall in a colonial outpost, and had to mix with high society (such as the colonial governor) to carry on the deception. It worked well for a while, but some of the rougher crew members became rowdy and started to fight. I thought we would be detected, as mutineers, but woke.
