Great puzzle, but I was pretty disappointed that the messengers were 'fools'.
I was an apprentice in Portsmouth Dockyard from 1976 and was forewarned of these type of tricks when I went in (my Father was in the Navy for 40 odd years) - but it wasn't a fool that fell for them, just a young lad that was a bit naive in the real world.
I won't tell you some of things that happened to some apprentices (not me, I could run too fast) as we all don't want another investigation from 40 years ago that nobody can remember.
All part of growing up, but certainly not fools.
Other than that, a great puzzle bringing back a few memories.
