    Conditional clause

    Hello everybody!

    Can you tell me whether my thought is correct or not? Let see:

    "Jame, who is one of our bravest men, never loses his temper; and if he was so tense during the Friday night operation the situation must have been extremely dangerous indeed."

    Here is my thought: In fact Jame got angry during the Friday night, so "if clause" would be the same tense with the following clause, in this case is simple past. And if he wasn't angry that night, we should say "If he had been angry...".

    Am I right? Correct me if I am wrong.

    Thank you very much!
