Storyline

After taking a direct hit which destroys the building the local hospital moves into Hoxley Hall where Lady Ellen meets old flame Dr. Richard Channing. She learns that Joyce's husband John, missing in France, has escaped back to England and arranges for him to recuperate at Hoxley Hall but he is amnesiac and fails to recognise his wife. Dennis Tucker's brother Frank comes to replace Billy as Finch's farmhand and befriends new land girl Iris who is illiterate and to whom he offers reading lessons. Finch, having to dig Mrs. Gulliver's garden for her, discovers a cache of old coins and, having injured himself, is only too happy to stay with her. Lady Ellen throws a party for the village to celebrate Connie and Henry's upcoming wedding but it is blighted by the appearance of the vengeful Storeys, smarting at Dennis's treatment of them, and by Connie's old boyfriend Danny, who has turned up from London.
