Full Plot

When ex-fighter pilot 'Honey' Honeyman crash lands in a field near Home Farm he asks Pop to deliver some boxes to his drinking club, the Ace of Clubs. He says they contain kitchen utensils but he has been smuggling drink over from France. The hop garden is Charley's if he can find the cash but ruthless property developer Marcus Cope tries to bribe him into letting him have it. Charley refuses. Cope is present at the Ace of Clubs where Ma, Pop, Charley and Mariette are 'Honey's guests. When the Larkins get home they find a bag full of money in their car. It was hidden there by a burglar on the run who was apparently on his way to see Cope at the club before he was arrested. Charley feels they should tell the police but Pop says they should sleep on it until they hear anything further. don @ minifie-1 Plot not found
