Will Tommy’s apprehension be justified when she comes face to face with her domestic staff at the villa?
Her handling of a drunken officer at the ex-Pats Club inspires admiration from the members but puts Bill on the trail of something sinister – especially when the identity of an old adversary shows up in his investigations.
Meanwhile, Bill’s appraisal of the local Recruit Training establishment and its complete disorganisation dismays his employers. Bill realises that to rebuild it from scratch would be an impossible task, so he brings Operation ‘New Broom’ into force.
Additional amusement is provided by the warm rapport that builds between Bill, Tommy and ‘Fred’, their permanent Arabic chauffeur.
As always, there is much to enjoy in Bob Bertie's latest light-hearted depiction of military life.
