Blanche Hunt: "Oh it's true what they say. In times of trouble, when backs are against walls, the wheat and the chaff separate. Them that are quitters fall by the wayside, but them that are fighters - with the blood of Trafalgar and Dunkirk pumping through their veins - they press on. Cometh the hour, Deirdre, Cometh the woman... Cometh Blanche Hunt."
