Harry and Douglas, helped by Sylvia, rescue the ailing king from hospital and bundle him into an ambulance with a view to sending him to safety in America. A flat tyre leads them to seek assistance at a farm house where they are almost betrayed and need to move on, arranging to meet Resistance leader Mayhew at the airfield. However they have walked into a trap - which at least draws Nazi attention away from the destruction of the bomb factory, as Douglas discovers a lesson in treachery. Douglas is captured and his friends killed whilst Barbara is destined to be deported. Douglas's freedom now depends on Huth, himself doomed to die by Kellermann. Written by don @ minifie-1
