The Final Specials - Strangers On The Shore

With the family fortune squandered, Del and Rodney set off for France to attend a memorial service in memory of Uncle Albert's old shipmates from the war. On the way back the Trotters pick up some rather unexpected cargo!

Further details

Derek and Rodney embark on a trip to France, agreeing to visit Uncle Albert's Navy memorial ceremony in his honour.

Upon their arrival at the village, they learn that Uncle Albert was hounded out of the country by the Resistance, due to his randy ways. Del and Rodney notice all the villagers seem to have mariner's beards. Coincidence?

Del, Boycie, Trigg, and Denzil pre-arranged a dodgy booze scam at Duty Free using Denzil's empty van... much to Rodney's annoyance.

When they arrive they discover an illegal immigrant has seemingly stowed away in their van. Naming him Gary, they house him, only to find he has escaped. Sadly the connection between Boycie's important business deal with a millionaire, and his missing son, isn't made. They wind up in Les Nick, arrested as The Gary Gang!
