Full Plot

Pop and Ma go to an open day at their son Monty's Naval Training College, where Pop publicly humiliates a bullying instructor who has been making Monty's life a misery. Charley gets his gun to see off Cope's thugs when they try to destroy the hop-garden, for which he has now got his bank loan to purchase. They return when Cope learns that Pop has got the money from the burglary, which he bank-rolled. They lock Pop in his barn whilst they search the house but he escapes and catches up with Ma, Mariette and Charley, who are setting out on a Ban the Bomb march. They rally all the protesters to drive the heavies away and, after Cope is arrested, Pop gets a reward of three thousand pounds. Monty arrives to say he has his first posting on a ship to Australia. don @ minifie-1 Plot not found
