Best Answer

From various mentions which are made during the course of the novel in could be inferred that Ralph is the son of a commander in the British navy. He moved home often as his father's duties took him to different naval bases. His mother seems to be either dead or separated from his father. As divorce was pretty uncommon at the time that the book was written the death of Ralph's mother seems the likelier of the two possibilities. Given his middle class background and the fact that he was living with only one parent, who would often be away from home on active duty, it seems probable that Ralph was a pupil at a boarding school.
