Police constable Jones is murdered and a witness hears the killer say Merlin, leading Sidney and Geordie to the Merlin factory, where Geordie is also shot though Sidney believes the gunman mistook him for his real intended victim. Helped by Mrs Maguire and Leonard Sidney discovers that the actual and intended victims served in the same unit in the war and, whilst their commanding officer, Heath, is unhelpful, his nervous wife gives Sidney the names of other ex-soldiers. One of them, Robert Miller, tells Sidney about Spreenhagen, the site where Heath's men murdered unarmed German prisoners of war. The killer is clearly out to avenge them and, defying the inept and bullying inspector Benson, Sidney cracks the case, visiting the recovering Geordie to tell him the result.

Whilst walking through a pre-1950 factory fluorescent lamps can be seen hanging from all the ceilings. This is Not a goof (even though the lamp housings are indeed modern). As an example; according to Wikipedia: "By 1951 more light was produced in the United States by fluorescent lamps than by incandescent lamps." See more
