Flowers is tattooed with a comet that is also a flag, a dancing naked woman and, as a recent addition, a design of roses and lilies;
on a recent drinking spree, Flowers blacked out, does not now understand why he chose the flowers tattoo and intends to have it removed;
Flowers in his courier boat is captured by an enemy cruiser;
enemy Intelligence is unable to decipher Flower's dispatches;
however, after interrogating him under drugs and brain stimulation, they conclude that he is no one important.
The clue is in the title.
