|I guess my own anecdotal experience

in consequence of the missive, Anne's character development/relationship watershed, penned by Margaret 7
does not bear this out. My own father was a Navy fighter pilot during WWII. He was always cool in a crisis, whether it was a family member or not. He might very well fall apart afterwards but he was extremely useful during a crisis. My own dh is the same way. He wasn't military, just a Boy Scout. But all that training kicks in when there is a crisis. Again, he can really be haunted and disturbed by the possibilities afterwards, but at the time he is calm and always seems to know just what to do. So I guess it just didn't hit me as accurate that Captain Wentworth wouldn't automatically go into "battle mode" when Louisa injures herself.
It does provide a nice contrast to Anne's response. It makes one think how useful it will be to have Anne on board a ship, just as Mrs. Croft must be with the Admiral.
